Investments

Simple Claims Assistance are here to help if you have been a victim of a mis-sold Pension Investment.

Your information is secure

There are multiple ways in which you may have been mis-sold a pension investment.

Here are some common scenarios in which you may have been mis-sold investments:

Were you advised to invest all or most of your savings into a single product?

Were you promised that it was a safe or even a government backed investment?

Were you ill-informed about the risks involved with certain types of investments, which may have resulted in you making a poor choice?

Perhaps the investment product was too complicated to fully understand?

Maybe the investment product, was not suitable for your circumstances or risk profile?

Did the adviser/firm set you up as an “Execution Only” client?

Simple Claims Assistance are here to help – Our dedicated team and case managers can provide answers and where possible, can help you in recovering your losses. Perhaps you were promised better returns, but ultimately lost more money due to being poorly advised about the risks involved? You have come to the right place for recuperating your losses!

Some of these investments were most likely promoted as unique opportunities but they were also high risk, which resulted in you losing part or all of your Pension Fund!

If you received misleading information and advice about how your pension would perform when re-invested and even signed documents, we are still able to work on your case for a satisfactory resolution, recover your losses and claim compensation!

Simple Claims Assistance specialise in compensation for mis-sold Investments

It is essential that you take action as soon as possible if you believe you have been mis-sold an investment by a financial advisor or organisation. There are in fact some time restraints on your claims. There is nothing worse than finding out you were entitled to compensation, but have run out of time to take action and the money that you invested and lost, has gone forever!

In our experience, you will receive annual reports from these investment companies with a promise of  settlement or a refund, but then later mention that they cannot return your money.

Simple Claims Assistance has a team of experts who can help you claim thousands of pounds in compensation! We gather evidence from both you and the company concerned, so you can be confident that we have everything necessary to submit a successful claim or complaint.

You may want to claim or complain yourself to recover your losses. Please visit the FSCS (Financial Services Compensation Scheme) or FOS (Financial Ombudsman Service) for more details or ask one of our Case Managers.

We will always act in your best interests and are committed to making sure you get the compensation you deserve. Contact us today to find out how we can help you. Our case managers are waiting for your call to start the process of reclaiming the money that is rightfully yours.

Frequently asked questions

  • Is Simple Claims Assistance able to help me?
    If you opened a SIPP (Self Invested Personal Pension) in the last ten years and invested in one or more high-risk non-standard investments through your SIPP, Simple Claims Assistance may be able to help you.
  • What is a non-standard (high-risk) investment?
    It is an investment that cannot easily or quickly be sold and turned into cash. It could include overseas hotel rooms, interests in farmland and forestry, self-storage units, shares and bonds in unquoted companies, plots in land-banking schemes and many others. In fact, it is any investment other than those, which can be readily bought and sold.
  • Is there anything wrong with non-standard investments?
    Whatever you may have been told, almost all non-standard investments are high-risk. Unless you are quite wealthy, acquiring non-standard investments as a way of saving for your retirement is likely to be unwise. Additionally, many of the non-standard investments acquired through SIPPs have not performed as promised, often failing altogether.
  • Why am I entitled to compensation?
    The FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) regulates both the SIPP operators and the Financial Advisers (FAs) that may have advised on SIPPs. If a Financial Adviser advised you, then they may have broken FCA rules. Therefore, the SIPP operators may also have broken FCA rules. In the year 2000 Parliament created special bodies through which victims of bad practice by Financial Advisers and SIPP operators can obtain compensation.
  • What could my Financial Adviser have done wrong?
    It is likely that they advised on opening your SIPP and on your moving existing pensions into it, without properly assessing whether a SIPP was suitable for you. Equally without conducting correct assessment of the non-standard investments introduced into your SIPP.
  • What could my SIPP operator have done wrong?
    The SIPP operator may have accepted your or your adviser’s instructions to purchase non-standard investments, knowing that you were receiving bad advice, or the advice was given unlawfully. The SIPP operator may not have conducted adequate due diligence on the investments. Not exercising sufficient duty of care.
  • Was criminality involved?
    Some providers of non-standard investments may have acted criminally; and it is possible that some Financial Advisers also did so. Simple Claims Assistance will report any suspicion of criminality to the appropriate authority. But Simple Claims Assistance’s primary focus is on the civil claims you have against regulated entities, especially Financial Advisers and SIPP operators.
