This former advice firm was based in Perth, at the postcode PH2 0NJ. The firm was asked to suspend Pension Transfer Advice and activity in 2013 by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The firm ceased trading and went into liquidation in 2016.
This business was part of Douglas Baillie Ltd. - and conducted Pension Transfer business using their then website "thepensionspecialists.co.uk". This business arm ceased pension transfer activity in 2013.
We have pursued successful claims for clients who have been placed into storage pod investments - via Store First Ltd. by Douglas Baillie Ltd. As this firm has ceased to trade, we prepare claims via the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
If you have any concerns about your former dealings with this firm. you can either make a claim yourself via the FSCS, or we can use our experience and expertise to quickly check if you may be able to pursue Douglas Baillie Ltd claims.
You will never be asked to pay any monies up front by us. We will only ask for our fee after you have been paid any compensation. We charge 15% (inclusive of VAT) of any compensation won - and do please check us out against our competitors - we are proud of our low charges. We have reduced this fee to reflect the large number of these claims that we have handled.
We have been very fortunate to have won many claims for clients - and some of our client testimonials will tell you how they have felt about our service.
Yes, when handling the claims for Mr and Mrs P of Scotland, we were able to present 4 claims to FSCS that resulted in them winning compensation awards of £100,000 - each - half of which was in respect of advice from Douglas Baillie Ltd.
We make submissions to compensation bodies - such as the FSCS - to argue the case for your compensation. This can include having calculations carried out by actuaries - we don't simply claim for the original amount that you had invested.
We do not handle client monies, we request that all compensation is paid to you directly, and only after a successful win, and only once you have cleared funds from the award will we send you our invoice. If we don't win an award for you - you don't pay us a fee!
