Two Norfolk-based financial advisers have been charged with a total of 14 offences for alleged fraud likely to run into millions of pounds, according to investigators.
Alan Taylor, 36, of St Stephen's, Norwich, has been charged with seven counts of fraud including conspiracy to defraud and fraud by abuse of position.
And his brother Russell Taylor, 35, of Old Hall Road in Witton, has been charged with seven separate counts of fraud, also including conspiracy to defraud and fraud by abuse of position.
The charges relate to investments handled between their businesses, Taylor and Taylor Associates, based in Hoveton, and Vantage Investment Group, based at managed offices in Cavell House, Stannard Place, near Anglia Square, Norwich, between January 2008 and July 2015.
The investigation has been led by officers from the Eastern Region Specialist Operations Unit after the men were arrested on October 21 last year.
