Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) Class Action

In 2014, Shine Lawyers commenced a class action against Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS). The class action was brought on behalf of people who were negligently advised by Navra Financial Services Pty Ltd (Navra) to buy unlisted RBS-issued rolling instalment warrants or managed fund instalment warrants (“claim warrants”), between February 2008 and March 2011.

The basis of the class action is that the claim warrants were allegedly sold to Navra clients without RBS taking any steps to determine whether or not the products were suitable for the clients’ investment purposes. Further, misrepresentations were allegedly made about the way the claim warrants would perform, and these misrepresentations also caused loss to investors.

On 15 June 2017, Shine Lawyers took the action to the Federal Court of Sydney to advance the class action on behalf of over 200 individuals who have suffered as a result of negligent investment advice. The Federal Court set the class action down for trial in March 2018.

For more information on the RBS Class Action, or to speak to a member of Shine Lawyers' Class Actions department, get in touch today.

Common questions about Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) Class Action

The unlisted rolling instalment warrants and managed fund instalment warrants (“claim warrants”) were complex derivative financial products and were only suitable for knowledgeable, speculative investors who understood the risks of warrants and highly geared financial products.

The claim warrants were leveraged and provided the purchasers with exposure to units in the Navra Retail Fund. They were not tradable on the ASX.
The claim is against RBS for breach of contract, unconscionable conduct and vicarious liability for misleading and deceptive conduct as a linked credit provider to Navra Financial Services. The claim also includes ABN AMRO warrants because RBS acquired ABN AMRO in 2009.
Anyone who bought ABN AMRO or RBS-issued claim warrants through Navra Financial Services between 2008 and 2011 is eligible to join the class action.

If you are unsure about the kind of financial products you held through Navra Financial Services, please contact us.
Anyone who bought ABN AMRO or RBS-issued claim warrants through Navra Financial Services between 2008 and 2011 and experienced loss is eligible to join the RBS class action.
