Aberdeen based Moneywise Financial Advisers Ltd are no longer authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) meaning they can no longer provide regulated products or services.
However, before this change of status, the FCA had placed restrictions on Moneywise Financial Advisers Ltd regarding pension switches and transfers, suggesting they had concerns with how they conducted business relating to pension advice.
Pension mis-selling usually occurs when an adviser recommends investments that are unsuitable for the client, for example high -risk, unregulated investments.
That’s why a regulated financial adviser has a duty to check that:
If they didn’t do this or they did and still recommended an unsuitable financial product, then this could be mis-selling and you may be able to claim compensation.
