GraingerCo, was a trading style of Foreman Financial Services Ltd who were based in Tunbridge Wells. In October 2017, the Financial Conduct Authority cancelled their permissions after they failed to comply and pay a client compensation.
This meant they were no longer authorised to carry out regulated activities, especially providing financial advice.
Previous complaints upheld against Foreman Financial Services Ltd also related to unsuitable advice given to invest in high-risk investments, through SIPPs.
One notable investment was the Greyfriars Portfolio Six – a somewhat controversial investment portfolio linked to many mis-selling claims. This is due to the high-risk unregulated investments within it and the fact that it was marketed at clients who were not suitable for these products.
Another case upheld against the firm involved Harlequin Property. The complaint was made after they had recommended their client buy into Harlequin through a SIPP, without checking the suitability of the investment.
