Elysian Fuels

If you received advice to invest in Elysian Fuels you may want to check if you should be claiming compensation

Elysian Fuels was an investment scheme in renewable and sustainable energy. 

Future Capital Partners

It was promoted by Future Capital Partners Limited and many clients invested as part of their SIPP.  Providers Rowanmoor and James Hay are known to have had this investment in some of their SIPPs. 

Unsuitable Investment 

They were reported to have taken £200m in investment, £180m of which came from SIPP investors.

Unfortunately, being a high-risk, unregulated scheme meant it was an unsuitable investment for most SIPP clients. 

Many clients who did invest in the scheme also faced uncertainty regarding HMRC liabilities for unauthorised pension withdrawal. 

Vanguard Wealth Management 

One notable adviser involved is Vanguard Wealth Management. In October 2020 the FCA banned two of the directors of Vanguard for making false declarations about their clients to James Hay. 

They inflated some clients’ valuation information so they would be classed as “high-net worth individuals” making them eligible to invest in Elysian Fuels through James Hay SIPPs. 

Vanguard reportedly earned nearly half a million pounds in commission and fees for advising clients into Elysian Fuels. The company is no longer authorised by the FCA and currently in liquidation. 

Financial Advice and SIPP mis-selling

Whilst this shows the extremes of negligent financial advice, in many mis-selling cases, the advice people received regarding their pension was simply unsuitable. 

Unsuitable Financial Advice is one the main reasons people are now claiming compensation for SIPP mis-selling.

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.

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
