Blackmore Bonds has removed all literature relating to its bonds from its website and replaced them with the following notice:
We have achieved our fundraising goals for this tax year and are not currently taking new investment.
We will be introducing our next offering in the following tax year, so please watch this space for future announcements.
If you are a current investor, you can log in below to manage your account.
At time of writing the rest of the website consists of pictures of six Blackmore property developments and an invitation for residential developers and landowners to contact Blackmore to build partnerships.
After the collapse of London Capital & Finance in December 2018, LCF’s marketing agent, Surge, switched to promoting Blackmore via its top-isa-rates.co.uk and best-interest-rates.co.uk websites. This led to a brief resurgence in web traffic to Blackmore, with its Alexa ranking climbing from sub-1-million to a peak of 500,000 in February 2019.
In February 2019 Surge’s websites stopped promoting Blackmore, and traffic to Blackmore Bonds’ website has declined sharply since, currently sitting at an Alexa rank of 600,000 and falling.
At time of writing, best-interest-rates.co.uk shows a blank page, while top-isa-rates.co.uk promotes a range of peer-to-peer and IFISA investments, with Capital Bridge as their “top pick”. The table no longer misleadingly compares these investments with cash ISAs, instead listing capital-at-risk IFISAs only.
If Blackmore’s offering in the new tax year is materially different from its last one, we’ll bring you an update at that time.
