Investments in Mis-sold SIPPs

Taking a look at the investments in your SIPP may help indicate if you’ve been mis-sold.

If you’re invested in something high-risk and unregulated which is possibly unsuitable for you and your circumstances this could be mis-selling.

The reason many people are mis-sold SIPPs is because the risks involved with investments they contain does not match their attitude to risk.

In many mis-sold SIPP cases clients were not adequately told of the risks and sometimes even promised guaranteed high returns if they invested.

This is usually the case when an Unregulated Pension Introducer is involved. They are not subject to the rules of regulated firms and can make misleading statements regarding products so as to generate their commissions.

In a lot of cases clients only become aware they have been mis-sold when they see unexpected losses to their pension funds as the value of investments decrease.

Investments and Mis-selling

From overseas property schemes to renewable energies and storage-pods; high risk, unregulated investments are generally regarded as only being suitable for certain investors.

Unfortunately, too many people who aren’t suitable for these types of investment schemes have ended up invested in them anyway, usually as part of their SIPP.
