The UK Financial regulatory landscape is tough to navigate, particularly, given regular changes made to the financial rules and regulations, the industry often demands a versatile legal mind to services in the sector.
We can help to guide you through the complex regulatory environment, in particular; Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) and The Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Regulated Activities) Order 2001 and 2015 (“RAO”) and Pension mis-selling.
We act for both financial institutions/businesses and individual Claimants.
We know what it takes to achieve the best result for our clients as we have a foot in both camps.
Our legal services not only extend to claims against those who have mis-sold Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP). SIPPs were designed to give the UK consumer a higher degree of control over their pension. A higher degree of control was the attractive feature of a SIPP scheme, which led to vast mis-selling of these financial products.
We find that the risks associated with SIPP scheme sometimes were not made obvious to the UK consumer/investors and as a result, collectively, the UK consumer lost millions of pounds. This led to many mis-sold SIPPS complaints.
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). If you have invested into your pension pot in a SIPP scheme and discovered that you have now lost as a result, we can check your investment against a number of criteria such as pressure selling and unsuitable scheme. Furthermore, we check to see if you were advised to transfer your existing private pension fund to a new, higher return scheme even though it was not suitable for your needs. We also look for as to whether fees were explained to you and whether surprise fees or additional costs were levied against your investment that you were not made aware of from the start.
If your case meet the criteria then we will pursue a claim against the IFA, or FSCS. If you need advice regarding a pension investment claim, please click here to contact a member of our dedicated team today.
