Ten miles off the east coast of Britain sits a discovery that heralds

Britain’s “Second Coming”

Just a little more than fifty-one years ago, a discovery in the North Sea should have made our nation rich and secure forever… a gigantic 45-billion-barrel oil windfall that promised extraordinary wealth – but never delivered.

Until today.

Now a new ‘North Sea’ energy find – believed by one economist to potentially “equal the whole production of North Sea oil” – is about to hand our nation a second chance…


Important Risk Warning:

Before investing you should consider carefully the risks involved, including those described below. If you have any doubt as to suitability or taxation implications, seek independent financial advice.

General - Your capital is at risk when you invest in shares, never risk more than you can afford to lose. Past performance and forecasts are not reliable indicators of future results. There is no guarantee dividends will be paid. Bid/offer spreads, commissions, fees and other charges can reduce returns from investments. The FCA does not regulate the crypto-currency market.

Small cap shares - Shares recommended may be small company shares. These can be relatively illiquid meaning they are hard to trade and can have a large bid/offer spread. If you need to sell soon after you bought, you might get back less that you paid. This makes them riskier than other investments. Small companies may not pay a dividend.

Overseas shares - Some recommendations may be denominated in a currency other than sterling. The return from these may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. Any dividends will be taxed at source in the country of issue.

Taxation – Profits from share dealing are a form of income and subject to taxation. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future.

Figures quoted in this promotion do not take dealing costs or taxation into account.
