Established in 2011 and based in Milton Keynes. They also traded as Unite Financial Services.
Independent Financial Matters are currently in liquidation and no longer authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority.
In June 2021, the FSCS declared them in default. This is something they do when they are satisfied there are existing protected claims against the firm, and that the firm is unlikely to be able to pay compensation.
You may still be able to claim compensation from the FSCS if a regulated firm or individual is no longer in business and is in default. This depends on the firm involved and the type of activity they do.
Claims have been made against Independent Financial Matters Ltd relating to SIPPs, pension transfer advice and re-mortgaging.
Most pension mis-selling cases occur because of poor or sometimes just plain negligent financial advice. If a regulated company or adviser has recommended a product like an investment or pension transfer and it wasn’t suitable for you, this may be pension mis-selling.
