The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has brought proceedings against Mr Robin Forster, Fortem Global Limited and Mr Richard Tasker for their alleged involvement in unauthorised investment schemes in care homes. Under the schemes, investors have lost c.£30 million after they were induced to make investments in care homes owned by two of Mr Forster's now defunct companies. The FCA alleges that the inducements were misleading, as profits from the homes could never deliver on the promised returns.

The FCA is seeking an injunction and a declaration from the High Court that the defendants' actions were an unauthorised activity and a restitution order to return funds to affected customers.
