Can I still make a claim if Connected Financial Services is in default?

You can still make a claim for compensation against Connected Financial Services, trading as Otium Finance and Rothgen Capital.

But the claim will be processed by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FCSC).

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme exists to protect the customers of financial services firms that’ve failed and can’t pay claims.

When a firm is declared in default, they step in and can pay compensation to eligible claimants.

The FSCS is limited to how much compensation it can award, which depends on when and how you were mis-sold.

The maximum amount it can currently award is capped at £85,000.
