Did your adviser recommend you move your pension into a London & Colonial SIPP?

Many London & Colonial SIPPs had underlying investments that were high-risk and unsuitable for the average investor.

But poor financial advice and in some cases negligent actions by financial advisers has meant innocent clients have been led to invest their pension funds.

Did your adviser fail in their regulatory duty and didn’t duly explain the risks of investing in unregulated funds? You may have a case.


The Resort Group Investment in London & Colonial SIPPs

One investment linked to mis-sold SIPPs is The Resort Group (TRG). A high-risk investment in luxury holiday resorts in Cape Verde; it’s considered unsuitable for most SIPP investors.

Some clients were invited to pension presentations in London by The Resort Group.They were then referred to Real SIPP, CIB Life and Pensions and London & Colonial as part of a transfer package. This allowed clients to invest in TRG via a London & Colonial SIPP.

In October 2021 the FSCS said it had received nearly 2.5k claims linked to The Resort Group involving 51 different financial advisers, many of which are no longer trading.
