Mercia Financial Planning Ltd

FRN: 718251

Did you receive pension advice from Mercia Financial Planning Ltd?

Mercia Financial Planning Ltd was declared in default by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) in September 2022.

According to reports claims have been made to the FSCS about Mercia Financial involving pension transfer advice.

This includes claims in respect of the British Steel Pension Scheme (BSPS).

Thousands of BSPS members received unsuitable advice to transfer their pension and are now claiming compensation.

In January 2021, the FCA restricted the firm from disposing of any assets or selling its clients base without permission.

Mercia Financial Planning Ltd applied to have its FCA permissions cancelled in May 2022 and is currently in liquidation.

Can I still claim compensation if Mercia Financial Planning Ltd is in default?

Yes, you can still make a claim against Mercia Financial Planning Ltd, but your claim will be processed by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

The FSCS protects customers of financial services firms that have failed and a declaration of default means the FSCS has established there are claims that are eligible under its rules.

And that the firm/adviser are unlikely or unable to pay compensation.

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme has limits to how much compensation it can award depending on when and how you were mis-sold.
