Nottingham based financial adviser company Archer Bramley Ltd was formed in 2001.
In 2010 criticism from their clients started to appear in the press. One such client claimed Archer Bramley Ltd had placed £50,000 from his SIPP into a Contract For Difference (CFD) without making him aware of the high-risk nature of this investment, which lost the client £30,000.
Pension mis-selling commonly occurs as a result of poor or negligent financial advice to transfer into an unsuitable investment or pension product.
By 2015 complaints against the company had reached the point that Archer Bramley Ltd were declared in default by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
This is something the FSCS do when they are satisfied a company are unable to meet their financial obligations to clients, which includes paying out on compensation claims made against them.
Some of the most common investments associated with Archer Bramley are Carbon Trading Partnership, The Resort Group, Forestry Schemes, and Store First.
