Pension Connect

Pension Connect was an introducer company whom Asset Independent Financial Advisors Ltd is believed to have had dealings with.

Pension Connect was reportedly set up by former employees of First Review Pension Services, who hit the headlines in 2017 after an undercover Panorama documentary exposed the practices at their sister company Lifestyle Connections. According to the programme, they were heavily involved in promoting The Resort Group investment using free pension reviews. This led to a campaign and subsequent ban on cold calling.

The Resort Group has been mis-sold to many SIPP investors.

FCA Restrictions

In 2018 they were told by the FCA to “immediately cease all regulated investment activities for customers introduced by unauthorised introducers and/or the Firm’s Introducer Appointed Representatives (“IAR”)” pending a section 166 review. Which means an approved skilled person must review their activities.

They were also ordered to “immediately terminate relationships with all unauthorised introducers”

Christopher Fraser
After identifying a concern regarding my pension, I sought advice from Pension Claim Consulting. The response and customer service was swift and amazing. The courtesy and care taken throughout the whole process was phenomenal. The consultant’s communication from start to finish filled me with confidence that PCC do exactly what they state and were on hand whenever required. The level of understanding, empathy for the frustrations, and patience is by far the best I’ve witnessed. I cannot thank PCC enough for their outstanding work ethic and dedication to customers/clients. If you have any concerns at all regarding your pension, then I would highly recommend that you get in touch with them.

Pension Claim Consulting Ltd successfully won a case on my behalf following misguided advice I received in relation to my pension. They were most proactive in the process and kept me fully informed every step of the way. I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Very professional, very thorough and very good at what they do. Always at the end of the phone or email for any questions at anytime throughout the process. I can’t recommend them enough.
Roger King
Pension Claim Consulting managed to reclaim some of my pension by constantly chasing the company that fraudulently took my money. I though that I had lost everything. I cannot thank them enough on recovering some of my pension back.
Susan Stringer
Excellent standard of service. The claim was protracted substantially by virtue of opponents trying hard to not accept any responsibility for their actions and not return the pension fund. PCC kept me fully informed throughout the process, obtained an excellent result for me.They also kept chasing the opponent when little action was taking place from them. The staff were always pleasant and helpful to deal with and very encouraging when I felt my claim was doomed to failure. I can not praise highly enough
Paul Wilshaw
