In the pensions industry, Financial Advisers are the professionals who provide investment advice to their clients.
Authorised Financial Advisers and firms are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. They are subject to strict codes of conduct that try to ensure clients are protected and treated fairly.
When making financial recommendations, such as investments and pension transfers, Advisers must consider the client’s needs and circumstances, as well as the level of investment risk they are willing to take.
The majority of Financial Advisers work in the best interests of their clients while strictly following regulations. Unfortunately, a small minority have exposed their clients to unsuitable risks and losses as a result of the advice given.
If you have received unsuitable financial advice from a regulated Adviser or firm, you may be able to claim compensation.
We offer a free initial check to assess whether the advice you received was suitable or negligent and if you may have a case to pursue a claim for compensation.
You are not required to use our services to pursue your claim. You can also seek further advice or shop around subject to any time limits within which a claim must be made.
It is possible for you to present the claim for free, either to the firm or person against whom you wish to complain or to the statutory ombudsman (Financial Ombudsman Service or Pension Ombudsman Service) or the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, whichever is applicable to your claim.
We will not make or pursue a claim, or advise you to, if we know or have reasonable grounds to suspect that the claim does not have a good arguable basis, and or is fraudulent or frivolous.
