Talked into investing your
pension into a SIPP?

Hundreds of thousands of people have been convinced to invest their pension pot with the promise of High Performing Investments and Guaranteed Returns, in reality these turned out to be high-risk unsustainable schemes.

Due care and attention replaced with carelessness by regulated administrators

Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPP), used correctly can be a great tool for people to build their retirement nest egg. The problem is that some administrators used unregulated companies and didn’t do their background checks on what they were allowing people to invest in. The SIPP administrators who allowed people access to investment schemes like Ethical Forestry, Global Plantations and InvestUS have turned a tidy profit from customers fees alone. They were making money while most people lost theirs after the high returns they were promised never happened.

Some of the SIPP providers responsible for mis-selling include:

  • Guinness Mahon
  • Berkeley Burke
  • The Lifetime SIPP Company
  • Carey Pensions
  • Greyfriars Asset Management
  • Liberty SIPP

Mis-sold SIPPs have become the subject of an increasing number of complaints made to the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The good news is that after landmark litigation and regulation intervention more and more people have access to regaining some, or in some cases all of their lost investment!

    Were you pressured into investing your pension into something you didn’t want or need?
  • Unsuitable Scheme
    Were you advised to transfer your existing private pension fund to a new, higher return scheme even though it wasn’t suitable for your needs?
  • Unexplained Fees
    Were there any surprise fees or additional costs attached to the investment that you weren’t made aware of from the start?
  • Unexplained Risks
    Were there certain risks attached to your SIPP that you were not informed of when you agreed to invest?
  • Lost Investment
    Have you made significant losses as a result of any of the above issues?
