UK regulators afford consumers and small businesses a great deal of protection when taking investment advice. We act for clients to help secure compensation across various financial products.
Every authorised provider of financial products and services in the UK must adhere to rules in the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) handbook. The rulebook has been in place in various forms for many years and sets down how providers should behave towards their customers.
We have found many examples where behaviour falls well short of the expected standard. In these instances, we will investigate to assess rule breaking and potential channels of redress where losses have been incurred. Whilst we will review any case, we have particular experience representing clients in mis-selling of penny shares and SIPP pensions.
UK consumers are well protected by the law and financial regulators. Today claims can be brought against negligent firms and individuals for historic claims (reaching back 20 years or more in some cases), there are set rules and timescales in place to resolve complaints direct with providers - or failing a satisfactory outcome - with the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). And perhaps most reassuring, claims can be made against authorised firms who are now longer trading via an industry-funded compensation fund, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
