Jackson Francis Ltd

Jackson Francis Ltd was a Liverpool based sales company who persuaded more than 1,000 people to move their pensions and invest in Storage Pods.

A BBC expose revealed that Jackson Francis actively cold called people with “dormant pensions” to sell them the Store First investment.

Former salesmen admitted to “forging documents” and “..ticking of boxes on forms, which indicated investors were happy with a high level of risk – when the question had never been asked”

According to the report salespeople for Jackson Francis persuaded investors to part with pensions worth £100m.

Store First

Store First owner Toby Whittaker also reportedly paid £33m commission over a 2-year period to Transeuro Worldwide Holdings Ltd, which funded Jackson Francis Ltd.

He denied responsibility for the sales tactics used by Jackson Francis and stated they were not “employed to give financial advice, they are employed to explain the product”

 

Transeuro Worldwide Holdings Ltd

Transeuro Worldwide Holdings Ltd was controlled by former co-director of Store First Midlands Limited – Stephen “Mike” Talbot. Despite not formally being appointed a director of Transeuro, he accepted a 9-year disqualification undertaking in 2018 for failing to explain what happened to millions of pounds worth of assets.

Transeuro Worldwide Holdings Ltd also funded another introducer company called Sycamore Crown Ltd (Sycamore).

The directors of both these companies were disqualified after the Insolvency Service investigated them.  In relation to the Henley Retirement Benefit Scheme (HRBS) and Capita Oak Pension Scheme (COPS) they found that…

“… the introducers from both Sycamore and Jackson Francis misled clients about their expertise and experience, offering ‘guaranteed’ returns designed to encourage them to transfer their existing pension funds. As a result, more than £39m was paid into SIPPs, over £10m into COPS and more than £8m to HRBS.

Both of these schemes mainly invested clients’ money into Store First Ltd.

Jackson Francis entered liquidation in 2017.

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.
