AIGO Funds

If you have AIGO Funds in your SIPP you may want to check if you should be claiming compensation for mis-selling

The AIGO Fund (Alternative Investment Growth Opportunities) was promoted as an investment into natural resources and was managed by Fidelis Global Asset Management.

It was a ‘loan note’ property investment scheme in which investors were promised high returns through annual coupons paid as cash back into their SIPPS.

AIGO Funds (AIGO Holdings Plc) became insolvent as a result of SIPP Provider Guinness Mahon issuing a petition to wind up their business. This was after they failed to issue the returns (coupons) to investors and fulfil their redemption obligations.

Financial Advisers linked to AIGO

Many people who invested in the AIGO Fund through their SIPP – Self Invested Personal Pension – did so as a result of pension transfer advice.

Notable firms who actively advised people to invest in AIGO were Bank House Investment Management, Henderson Carter Associates and Financial Page. Unfortunately, this advice was not suitable for many investors and as a result the FSCS has already paid out more than 5.7m in compensation.

What Makes Advice Unsuitable?

  • If you felt pressured
  • You didn’t understand how the investment works
  • You weren’t aware of the risks involved
  • If the risks were more than you said you wanted to take or could afford

All of the above are potential red flags to pension mis-selling. A financial adviser has a duty to ensure all recommendations are suitable to your needs and attitude, if for whatever reason they failed to do this, you may have been mis-sold.

What Can You Do?

If you received advice to invest in the AIGO Fund, then you may have been mis-sold and could have a case to claim compensation.

A thoroughly positive result and experience. In all honesty I didn't have much hope of any success following a truly dodgy pension investment. I spent years angry at myself then decided to let these guys have a go on my behalf. It took hardy any effort on my part and they kept me fully informed, then out of the blue I got a call saying they have won all my pension back plus more and within days it hit my account. Thrilled with their effort and professionalism. I dealt with a few different staff and all were informative, polite and helpful. I great end to a terrible situation. 100% genuine review and I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you.

I was approached by Pension Claim Consulting after the company that was handle ing my SIPP had been investigated by the Financial Ombudsmen and informed me i had a case, with this information given to me i agreed to let them represent me in trying to reclaim my investment. All through the process i was informed of every step and on a regular basis even though it took many months the outcome was successful and i was reimbursed fully. This is a fantastic company to work with and dedicated staff who know their business. Many Thanks. Mike Dixon.
