If you were given financial advice by one of these firms: WSW Financial Services Ltd, or Easy Financial Planning (UK) LLP, or by WSW Wealth Management - it is possible that you were given a "pension comparison report" by owner Nick Maynard
Very often you will have been initially contacted by an "unregulated introducer". For example, a firm called Hennessy Jones may have "cold called" you out of the blue. They may have suggested that your existing pension could do better if transferred.
Unregulated Investments can be high risk, single asset (only invested in one company for example), illiquid (ie. hard to get your money out) and are often overseas. They are not regulated by the UK's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) for all of these reasons
Examples can include Storage Pod type investments, Aigo Loan notes in Mauritius, Green Oil, Ethical Forestry, Harlequin etc. etc. When these type of investments fail, you can face losing your pension.
You can make your own claim via the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) or you can choose to use the experience and expertise of a firm like ours. We charge a fee of 20% if we win compensation for you - but do not charge if we do not win compensation.
Our firm is run by two Partners - Gary Naylor and Ken Hanning, they have a wealth of experience within the industry, and can start your enquiry with a simple friendly conversation. You can call either of them free on 0800 254 5066, or use the email form below
