Latest – Better Retirement Group gives up FCA Permissions

Better Retirement Group has asked the FCA to impose requirements on its permissions, meaning it can no longer conduct regulated activity.

According to the FCA register, the firm applied to stop all regulated activities on May 30th 2022.

The firm was also subject to an Asset Retention order by the FCA in October 2020.

This prevented Better Retirement Group from disposing of any assets or selling their client base with the regulator’s consent.

Speaking to the FT Adviser the soon to be retired director Stuart Bayliss said

“I believe the quickest way for these people to get the compensation they deserve from the SVS debacle is for us to step out of the way’.”

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) has yet to declare default in respect of Better Retirement Group.

This would need to happen in order for the FSCS to step in and pay compensation to clients.

SVS Securities and Better Retirement Group

Better Retirement Group Ltd provided “specialist DB transfer services” to collapsed DFM SVS securities.

SVS Securities PLC entered special administration in 2019 after the Financial Conduct Authority identified “serious concerns” about the way in which the firm was operating.

The regulator warned some clients were paying fees and charges as high as 20% of their total investment.

In February, the FSCS said it had paid out a total of £31.6mn in compensation to former clients of SVS Securities.

A thoroughly positive result and experience. In all honesty I didn't have much hope of any success following a truly dodgy pension investment. I spent years angry at myself then decided to let these guys have a go on my behalf. It took hardy any effort on my part and they kept me fully informed, then out of the blue I got a call saying they have won all my pension back plus more and within days it hit my account. Thrilled with their effort and professionalism. I dealt with a few different staff and all were informative, polite and helpful. I great end to a terrible situation. 100% genuine review and I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you.

I was approached by Pension Claim Consulting after the company that was handle ing my SIPP had been investigated by the Financial Ombudsmen and informed me i had a case, with this information given to me i agreed to let them represent me in trying to reclaim my investment. All through the process i was informed of every step and on a regular basis even though it took many months the outcome was successful and i was reimbursed fully. This is a fantastic company to work with and dedicated staff who know their business. Many Thanks. Mike Dixon.
