Although it only relates to Qrops business, it's common across all their offerings. Hidden fees, undisclosed conflicts of interest, no advice, etc. The vast majority of their advisers aren't from the financial services industry and are only taught a sales pitch, so they're often ignorant of these facts.
Do business with this company and you'll lose a big chunk of your initial investment on day one with no means of recourse. You're also likely to get stuck in an inappropriate product/structure with ridiculous penalties for early redemption, or even worse, no accessibility whatsoever.
Don't rely on the regulators to protect you either, many of the jurisdictions don't have investors protections in place and the product providers like Generali, Old Mutual International, Friends Provident, etc., won't be of any assistance.
