Q&As CF Arch Cru investor’s pre April 2013

What is CF Arch Cru?

What is the Consumer Redress Scheme?

If I opt-in to the Consumer Redress Scheme will I receive a final payment when the fund is wound up?

If I don’t opt-in to the Consumer Redress Scheme and continue with the original compensation method when will I receive another pay-out?

How will the amount of compensation I am owed be calculated?

Where can I find the valuations used in my calculations under the Consumer Redress Scheme?

Will I be better off opting for the Consumer Redress Scheme or waiting for the CF Arch Cru fund to be wound up?

If the calculation under the Consumer Redress Scheme approach results in a ‘no loss’ could I revert back to the original method and have my claim reassessed upon crystallisation of the fund?

If I accept the redress scheme in final settlement, does that mean I also lose my claim on the funds themselves?

What if I believe I am suffering financial hardship or have other extenuating circumstances and need my claim to be considered urgently?
