Ross liquidators want $21m

Liquidators of Ponzi scheme Ross Asset Management have signalled they want more than $21 million from the investors who made profits from the scheme.

Friday, July 14th 2017, 1:09PM

Director David Ross stole $115m from at least 700 investors.

But other clients managed to withdraw their investments, and fictitious profits, before the scheme collapsed.

Nearly $10m has been recovered from 54 investors who settled claims against them before a Supreme Court decision in May on a test case brought against Wellington barrister Hamish McIntosh.

Now Ross liquidators PwC have written to 160 investors, asking them to settle claims against them worth $21.6m.

They have until Friday to make a decision, or face possible recovery action.

Earlier reports from PwC had suggested fictitious recovery claims could reach $40m - and could have been $90m if the Supreme Court decided principal should be paid back as well.

But the Supreme Court decided that McIntosh could keep his initial $500,000 investment.
