Grosvenor Butterworth Limited

If you received advice from Grosvenor Butterworth Limited you may want to check if you should be claiming compensation for mis-selling

Established in 1992, Cardiff based advice firm Grosvenor Butterworth (Financial Services) Limited closed its doors in 2018.

This came after the Financial Conduct Authority said recommendations they had given clients to invest in the Discretionary Fund Manager Beaufort Securities were “unsatisfactory”.

Beaufort Securities and Grosvenor Butterworth Limited

Even Beaufort Securities themselves expressed concern. Reports at the time claimed they had sent letters to their clients advising them to seek advice. Especially regarding the suitability of the recommendations made to invest with Beaufort, and if they had grounds to make a compensation claim.

Grosvenor Butterworth Limited and Loss of authorisation and administration

The company were initially placed under a section 166 review. This meant they had to have the supervision of a third party to review its practices regarding certain regulated activities, including advising on pension transfers. 

In 2018, the FCA stopped Grosvenor Butterworth’s regulated activity altogether, and they are no longer authorised. The company went into administration in 2019.

What is pension mis-selling?

Quite often pension mis-selling happens as a result of poor or negligent financial advice. A regulated adviser or company has a duty to ensure that the recommendations they make are suitable to your needs and risk profile.

If they didn’t this could be mis-selling and you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

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.
