What does it mean if Philip Griffin & Associates in default?

What is pension mis-selling?

Pension mis-selling basically means that the advice you received regarding your pension was misleading or unsuitable.

For example: it could be that you were advised to transfer your pension, but you would have been better off staying in your existing pension scheme. As a result, you may have lost valuable benefits and money. Find out more about pension mis-selling here

What is a mis-sold SIPP?

SIPPs or Self-Invested Personal Pensions are a “Do It Yourself” type of pension product. They can give people more freedom and flexibility in the choice of investments and can be excellent products for experienced investors.

Unfortunately, mis-sold SIPPs are common as thousands of people who aren’t suitable have been persuaded to move their pensions into SIPPs.

It’s so bad that it’s been dubbed a ‘scandal’

This SIPP scandal has been created us by unscrupulous Advisers, SIPP operators and Unregulated Introducers using them to get people to invest their pension in high risk, unregulated investments.

And billions of pounds have been lost as a result of the unregulated or high-risk investments in mis-sold SIPPs.
