Sipp firm hit with another FCA ban

  • Posted

Hartley Pensions has had another FCA ban preventing it from accepting ongoing contributions into self-invested personal pensions (SIPPs) and self-administered pension schemes (SSAS).  It has been reported the Sipp firm has serious operational and regulatory issues.

The restrictions mean clients can no longer make any new or ongoing contributions to their SIPP or SSAS through Hartley Pensions or move to another provider unless they have already requested to do so.

The firm will now seek to find another SIPP provider to take over administration of it’s affected cleints.

How can we help you?

Unfortunately, we have been dealing with cases like this for several years. If you transferred into a SIPP which is not performing as you were promised, you may be eligible to make a mis-sold pension claim.

A SIPP is a self-invested personal pension. It is, in essence, a DIY pension pot which allows you (the investor) with guidance from your financial advisers to invest in more varied investment products than most standard pensions. Unfortunately, we have seen some SIPP assets that are unsuitable for most investors for example, due to risk, security of investment, overseas or lack of regulatory indemnity amongst other reasons but there could be a more examples of where the advice to invest is unsuitable and open to a claim for re-imbursement.

Whatever your circumstances or the nature of your claim, our team of expert SIPP claims lawyers have all the necessary knowledge, skill, and strategies ready and in place to make the claims process as smooth, efficient and hassle-free, for you, as possible.
