Gerald Blakemore of Blakemore Wealth Management (BWM) has been banned for eight years after his firm provided poor pension investment advice resulting in clients losing millions.

BWM was authorised to provide pension switching and investment advice.

BWM had arranged pension transfers into SIPPs with the main reason to invest clients’ money into high-risk overseas investments.

The court heard that he invested £8.3 million of client funds without their knowledge.

Investigators uncovered that Blakemore was also a director of the overseas company, receiving £1.7 million for the transactions.

Further enquiries proved that Blakemore had personally benefited from these unsuitable investments and that he failed to disclose his conflict of interest.
