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.

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.

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
