Stadia Trustees Limited

If you had a SIPP with Stadia Trustees and you haven’t already checked whether you have been mis-sold – now’s the time to act!

Stadia Trustees Limited were a SIPP provider company, established in 2006.

In 2011 an FSA inspection of SIPP providers highlighted problems at Stadia which eventually led to the company winding down.

SIPP Schemes Operated by Stadia

  • Noisnep Sipp
  • Essential Sipp
  • Essex Community Foundation Sipp
  • Hero Sipp
  • Investor Club Sipp
  • Ipswich Sipp
  • Liberator Sipp and Munro Sipp

Green Leaf Global

In 2012, The Insolvency Service won a high court ruling to wind up Green Leaf Global biofuel investment project.

The FSA (who preceded the now FCA) supported the decision, agreeing that the investment had been wrongly categorised.

Green Leaf Global insisted they had received legal advice as to the classification of the investment.

According to reports at the time – Stadia had produced a trustee due diligence report on the Greenleaf Global and Greenleaf Global Togo biofuel projects and concluded they were a suitable investment to be held in a SIPP.

However, it’s thought that as many as 80% of Stadia clients had been exposed to non-standard assets; with many having all of their pension funds invested in these schemes.

Harlequin Property

Another investment linked to Stadia SIPPs is Harlequin Properties. This £400m project involving a luxury hotel development was largely never built and subsequently valued at nil.

Los Pandos was a high-risk, unregulated investment found in some Stadia SIPPs.

Stadia Trustees Restrictions and Winding down

In 2013 the FSA placed restrictions on Stadia’s permissions prohibiting them from accepting new business.

In 2016 Mattioli Woods stepped in to help Stadia wind down the business, including moving 1,000 clients into its own SIPPs.

After identifying a concern regarding my pension, I sought advice from Pension Claim Consulting. The response and customer service was swift and amazing. The courtesy and care taken throughout the whole process was phenomenal. The consultant’s communication from start to finish filled me with confidence that PCC do exactly what they state and were on hand whenever required. The level of understanding, empathy for the frustrations, and patience is by far the best I’ve witnessed. I cannot thank PCC enough for their outstanding work ethic and dedication to customers/clients. If you have any concerns at all regarding your pension, then I would highly recommend that you get in touch with them.

Pension Claim Consulting Ltd successfully won a case on my behalf following misguided advice I received in relation to my pension. They were most proactive in the process and kept me fully informed every step of the way. I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Very professional, very thorough and very good at what they do. Always at the end of the phone or email for any questions at anytime throughout the process. I can’t recommend them enough.
Roger King
Pension Claim Consulting managed to reclaim some of my pension by constantly chasing the company that fraudulently took my money. I though that I had lost everything. I cannot thank them enough on recovering some of my pension back.
Susan Stringer
Excellent standard of service. The claim was protracted substantially by virtue of opponents trying hard to not accept any responsibility for their actions and not return the pension fund. PCC kept me fully informed throughout the process, obtained an excellent result for me.They also kept chasing the opponent when little action was taking place from them. The staff were always pleasant and helpful to deal with and very encouraging when I felt my claim was doomed to failure. I can not praise highly enough
Paul Wilshaw
