The Liberty self-invested personal pension (SIPP) has now become default.

The company has since sold its entire client book to a company called Embark Group and is now beginning the process of winding down.

Transferring Pensions

Liberty SIPP first experienced problems when it was caught allowing clients to invest in unregulated and high risk investments like Gravity Child Care Ltd, Invest US, Sustainable Agro Energy, Gas Verdant, Global Plantation, and Ethical Forestry.

Clients were introduced through unregulated, third party introducers such as PFR Services, SJ Stone, Anton Barr, and Avacade. These companies were not authorised to give investment advice or information on transferring their pension.

Introducers That Weren’t Regulated

It is evident that Liberty SIPP didn’t correctly manage their clients as they accepted business from introducers that weren’t regulated, this left clients open to the possibility of significant losses.
