What were the problems with Stadia Trustees Limited?

Problems for Stadia Trustees first arose in 2011. The company was one of eight small SIPP firms inspected by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) as part of their efforts to tackle the risks posed by small firms and Ucis.

In 2013 Stadia Trustees put a halt to accepting all new regulated business after it varied its regulatory permissions as it could not meet capital adequacy requirements for Sipp providers imposed by the FSA in November 2012.

However, the company’s biggest downfall came in June 2018 when the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) declared that Stadia Trustees was one of three Sipp providers in default. The FSCS also stated they had received 150 claims against Stadia over due diligence failings.

What was the outcome for investors?

As a result of Stadia’s actions, people lost money that they had invested with the company. The majority of these investments were covered by FSCS payouts, however, investors were left with worry about the state of their pension pots.
