MJS Capital plc changes name to Colarb Capital plc

According to a filing with Companies House, MJS Capital plc has changed its name to Colarb Capital plc.

Over the past year, a number of investors have complained via comments on this blog and other online forums about MJS Capital failing to repay their bonds when they fell due. A common theme is MJS Capital negotiating a payment plan for the repayment of matured investments, which MJS then also fails to meet.

In June 2018 MJS / Colarb disclosed in its September 2017 accounts that it had experienced banking issues, with banks either freezing its accounts or refusing to allow it to open new ones.

Non-executive director Lord Razzall CBE resigned from the company in March 2018, saying in his resignation letter that he hoped his removal from the board would resolve MJS Capital’s banking problems.

MJS also disclosed in their accounts that they used a company set up by a former director (Martin Westney), imaginatively named MJS Cap Limited, in another attempt at resolving its banking issues.

From the ongoing complaints by investors, it does not appear that either measure has achieved much.

In June and July 2018 there was a brief flurry of promotional activity by MJS on Medium and Twitter but the company has since appeared to fall silent.

MJS / Colarb Capital managing director and owner Shaun Prince previously incorporated a company under the name Colarb Holdings Limited in December 2017. Exactly what Colarb is supposed to mean is unclear, although “arb” may relate to MJS’ underlying investment in arbitrage, while “col” could refer to “collective” or “collateral”.

At time of writing MJS Capital’s previous website (mjs.capital) is down. A search on Google for an official Colarb-branded website produced no results.

  8. Hi Brev I read somewhere in the bond review that according to article???? … these bonds were miss sold to certain investors who were classed as “Sophisticated investors” but due to their low investments it was not correct can you remember what the article number is ? according to financial regulations ? tried to search and could not find it again I think someone wrote this in the bond review around Sept/Oct 2018

  9. Possibly this article from the end of November? https://bondreview.co.uk/2018/11/30/mjs-colarb-capital-in-the-eveaning-standard-ceo-shaun-prince-claims-all-our-investors-are-fine-calls-them-liars-and-blames-them-for-investing/

    Whether you are a sophisticated investor doesn’t depend on how much money you invest. There are two types of sophisticated investors in UK regulation, certified and self-certified. A certified sophisticated investor must be certified by an FCA-authorised person and sign a statement. A self-certified sophisticated investor doesn’t need to be certified by an FCA-authorised person, but they must confirm that one of the following applies to them: 1) member of a business angels network, 2) recent investor in another unlisted company, 3) private equity or SME finance professional, or 4) director of a company with an annual turnover of at least £1 million.
