The Pensions Office Limited, based in Sheffield, lost its’ FCA authorisation a few years ago and in 2015 was declared in default with the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. This means that any claims against them for negligent advice will be dealt with by the FSCS.
There has been an increase in pension transfers in recent years, with people moving out of work place pension schemes into SIPPS, often on the advice of a financial adviser. This can be a good move for some people, providing the investments recommended are suitable and match their attitude to risk.
If, however, an adviser has placed you in High Risk, Unregulated schemes such as storage pods, overseas property, diamonds etc and you weren’t made aware that you could lose your investment, then the advice is negligent and you may be able to claim compensation against this advice.
