Bad Financial Advice 

Have you lost money because you relied on bad financial advice?  

Non-standard or high-risk investments


Bad Financial Advice

It is very difficult to decide how to invest your hard-earned savings or choose which pension fund to pay in to. You will have to take into account many factors and in those circumstances, it is reasonable and prudent to rely on a professional adviser. If you took advice how did you choose your adviser? Were they recommended? Do you know if they were qualified? Do you know if they were independent (an IFA) or tied? Did their advice turn out well for you?


Have you lost money?

There are many good financial advisers but if you were not fortunate enough to pick a good one have you lost money? If so explain the circumstances to us and we will see if you have a claim.

For example:

  • Were you were persuaded to leave your final salary scheme (but the returns were not what you hoped for)?
  • Did you cash in some of your pension pot (but now you are short of money)?
  • Were you persuaded to invest in a risky self-invested personal pension (SIPP) (but the money has been lost)?
  • Did you put your savings into “guaranteed” investment projects (but the investment failed)?


How we can help you?

If you have suffered loss from bad financial advice you have received you may have a claim. Contact us and we will look into it. If we think that you have a case we will pursue it for you on a “no-win, no-fee” agreement.

We will firstly make a complaint to the firm that advised you. If you have already complained we will make sure that your complaint has been fairly and fully considered.

If we do not receive a suitable result from the firm we will take your case to the Financial Services Ombudsman, commonly referred to as “FOS”. The FOS can do the following:

Award you up to £150,000 of compensation
Award interest to you
Award costs to you

We have experience in putting cases to FOS and can guide you through the complex rules and principles that are involved.


What can I do?

If you have been provided with advice from an IFA, that you may believe wasn’t in your best interests, or you have lost money on your investment, and you have concerns, please call us on 03003 033 819 or leave a message via our contact form and we will be in touch within 2 working days.

If, after reviewing your circumstances we believe you were mis-sold an investment we will pursue your claim under a “no win no fee” scheme.

Our team are available 9am-5pm
