Have you been paying into a pension plan recommended by a financial adviser, only to find that the value of your pension is a lot less than you had expected?

Thank you very much for all your help and the very good service received – swiftness, honesty and efficiency. Mr Rogerson

Many financial advisers have recommended that customers make contributions into Self Invested Personal Pensions (commonly known as SIPPs) in order to save for their retirements, with promises of capital growth beyond other pension or savings schemes.

SIPPs are personal pension plans designed to hold a number of investment funds within a single pension ‘wrapper’. The money placed into the SIPP by the customer is invested into a number of different funds, with the hope that, by managing the funds correctly, the capital would grow over time and allow the customer a higher pension once he retires.

These funds are usually chosen by the financial adviser, who will pick suitable investments within the SIPP based on your needs and objectives and which reflect your attitude toward risk.

However, a large number of customers who were advised to place their pension funds into these SIPPs have found that they have lost money due to risky investments which they were not properly advised about.

Customers who trusted their financial advisers with the money on which they would rely in their retirement have been let down…

Customers who trusted their financial advisers with the money on which they would rely in their retirement have been let down and wrongly advised about investments within their pension. The result of this is that a lot of pensioners and people close to retirement age have been left with severely reduced pensions and face financial difficulty, distress and worry at a time when they should be enjoying the benefits of their working life.

Has the value of your pension fallen when you were reassured by your financial adviser that it would increase? Has your adviser failed to tell you about charges which erode the value of your pension, or repeatedly advised you to alter your investments, with no explanation of the benefits of this?

A lot of our clients have suffered a loss in the value of their SIPP because their financial adviser did not properly consider their circumstances, or failed to accurately assess their attitude toward risk.

Alternatively, financial advisers have been failing to take the details they do obtain into account, such as recommending that client’s SIPPs are invested into high risk funds when our client wished for a pension which would protect their pension fund and ensure that they were able to rely on the income following their retirement.

If you have been advised to transfer your pension into a SIPP then this advice may not have been right for you. We can investigate the advice you received and the way in which your SIPP has been administered to determine if you were poorly advised, at no cost to you.

Mis-selling or mis-management by a SIPP Operator?

Have you suffered financial losses on a SIPP operated by a SIPP operator? If so, then you may have grounds for bringing a No Win No Fee claim.

Some SIPP operators have entered into dealings with third party advisers who are not authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority to give pension or investment advice. This is despite their regulatory body publishing alerts and giving warnings against such actions.
