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.
