Omega Financial Solutions

If you received advice from Omega Financial Solutions, you may want to check if you should be claiming compensation for mis-selling.

Omega Financial Solutions were a financial advice firm, established in 2008 and based in Blackpool.

The firm entered liquidation in August 2018 and according to the liquidator’s report, were subject to an FCA supervision review regarding their “high level of activity” in the DB transfer market.

The FCA raised concerns about the sales processes and advice given to these pension transfers. The FCA subsequently told them to immediately cease all regulated activity in relation to pensions and investments.

The FSCS declared them in default in July 2019.


British Steel Pension Transfer Mis-selling

Omega Financial Solutions were one of several companies to be linked to the British Steel pension transfer scandal.

In 2017 many British Steel employees were purposely targeted and advised to transfer their pensions.

However, this advice was not in the best interest for the great majority of British Steel Pension Scheme (BSPS) members, as very few pension transfers of this kind are.

Pension Transfer Mis-selling and Omega Financial Solutions

Pension transfer mis-selling usually involves poor or negligent financial advice.

Defined Benefit schemes are considered extremely valuable pensions and it’s only in exceptional circumstances that a pension transfer would be suitable.

Unfortunately, British Steel members would not only have lost the benefits already built up in the BSPS, but it’s unlikely they could achieve the same level of benefits from their new plan.

It may also be that the investments within the SIPP are unsuitable. As with many mis-selling cases, people are recommended schemes that expose them to high-risk and unregulated investments, which are simply not suitable for them.

Omega Financial Solutions and unsuitable advice complaints

Unsuitable advice complaints are now being made to the FSCS against Omega Financial Solutions by those eligible for compensation.

According to reports in February this year, the FSCS made a provisional claim worth £4.2m relating to 42 successful claims against Omega, with a further 137 claims against the firm being reviewed by the FSCS.

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.
