Mis-sold SIPP claim

 

An announcement by the scheme confirmed that they would compensate investors involved in more than 150 claims against Brooklands Trustees, Montpelier Pension Administration and Stadia Trustees, all of whom the FSCS declared as in default. Over time, the number of pension providers at fault has increased.

Claims made relate to unregulated, non-standard investments which include oil fields, overseas property and diamonds, and are all deemed as high risk.

It has been confirmed by the FSCS that the action taken relates to the way that firms created and administered the SIPPs, through which the claimants invested. This direction of these claims suggests due diligence failings.

Was a SIPP mis-sold to you?

 

The first place to look when considering if you have been the victim of SIPP mis-selling is the investment product itself. If it was a non-standard or exotic investment, then it could fall under the case of mis-selling.

To clarify – what is a non-standard or exotic investment product? Looking back at the selection of SIPP investments mis-sold in recent years, examples of these assets include:

→ Unlisted shares
→ Car parking schemes
→ Property both in the UK and overseas
→ Overseas holiday resorts
→ Burial plots
→ Farmland
→ Renewable energy
→ Forestry

More signs that you may have been mis-sold include:

 

→ A lack of transparency in relation to fees involved
→ Aggressive and highly pressured sales tactics
→ High fees claimed by the financial advisor
→ Feeling that risks were not adequately explained prior to making a decision
→ A lack of understanding regarding the investment itself
→ Your previous pension scheme met your needs
→ The suggestion that investing in a SIPP assisted in avoiding certain taxes

    I was advised to transfer from the NHS Pension Scheme into a SIPP.

    My transfer value was circa £246,000 in October 2015 and the funds were invested in Greyfriars P6 Portfolio (which is an illiquid portfolio of none standard debt based bonds).

    I didn’t fully understand the implications or that the advice received was questionable. Particularly as it had grown to a value of £265,000

    After a review of my pension by pension specialist Gavin at Maple, Gavin advised me I had two claims, one against Active Investment Services ltd and the further one against Active Wealth Ltd.

    The compensation based on the detailed claim submitted was £317,144. Although the compensation was limited to £50,000.

    Had I not been referred to Maple and they hard work and expertise I would not have received any type of compensation.

    Mr PV

    Gavin Hill and in turn Maple Leaf Financial have been very professional and diligent throughout.

    The process was explained well giving realistic time frames and chances of success upfront.

    We were kept well informed throughout and were obviously delighted with the outcome.

    I have already recommended their services to colleagues and would have no hesitation in doing so again in the future.

    I was advised by an independent financial adviser to transfer from my Prudential Pension and Royal London pension into a SIPP and invest the funds into Greyfriars P6 portfolio, Gavin of Maple established that I should not of transferred my pension and as the adviser firm had ceased trading, he submitted a claim to the FSCS and get me compensation of £44916.

    He didn’t stop their he monitored my pension and as one of the investments I was had closed, he get me a further £5083.

    During his investigation he identified that I was transferred out of the Teachers Pension scheme and this advice was unsuitable, he has submitted a claim to the FSCS for this advice also.

    The service was great Maple did everything for me and get me compensation.

    Dr NB

    Having previously being given erroneous advice regarding transferring my pension, by a previous advisor, I was resigned to the fact that I had lost a significant sum from my pension fund.

    I received a recommendation to talk to Gavin, and he informed me that there was a compensation scheme through which I should be able to claim a significant sum.

    Like so many others, I was unaware of this, but Gavin processed the entire claim for me, and I received compensation of £50,000.Thank you Gavin!
