Brooklands Trustees Limited were a Bristol based SIPP provider company. Established in 2006 they reportedly administered over 5500 SIPPs.
The Financial Ombudsman Service had provisionally ruled against them in several complaints from SIPP clients who had invested their pension in an unregulated investment through their Brooklands SIPP.
The clients had been referred by an unregulated introducer firm – FCP Insurance Consultants. They were based in Cyprus and not authorised to give pension or investment advice. The investment was LM Managed Performance (LMMP), an Australian property fund that collapsed in 2013.
In 2016 the FSCS declared them in default and the company entered Administration as a result of the incoming claims.
Before going into Administration in 2016, Brooklands sold their SIPP book to Heritage Pensions, who along with the old Brooklands Team rebranded to ICVM.
Brooklands Trustees Limited have now dissolved following liquidation in 2018.
Claims against the firm are being assessed by the FSCS.
