Founded in 2010, Henderson Carter, formerly Henderson & Dumbleton Ltd, were an Independent Financial Adviser firm who gave people financial advice on things such as pensions transfers and SIPPs.
It’s this advice which landed them in trouble with the FCA, who in 2016 removed permissions for them to conduct regulated activity in respect of pension switches and transfers into SIPPs and for them to cease conducting all pension business.
They also put a note on the company’s FCA register profile which said
