It was back in 2014 when Curtis Banks purchased the self-invested personal pension (SIPP) business from Pointon York.

Although Pointon York had many vanilla assets within its portfolio, some of its clients were given the advice to move their existing pension into one of their SIPPs. Clients pension funds were then put into none standard and risky investments like carbon credits, bamboo, and foreign property.

Mis-Selling Pensions

Although Henderson Carter Associates Ltd, Financial Page, and Bank House Investment Management Ltd all set up SIPPs through Pointon York’s portal, they all failed to provide their clients with pension advice that was suitable. These companies were guilty of accepting clients who had been cold called with the offer of free pension reviews. As a result, their pension were then transferred over to execution only transactions.

There has been a big increase in those types of transactions occurring recently. But don’t worry as people have been compensated for this as the independent financial advisors failed to act in a way that was in the best interest of their clients. If you are someone who had a SIPP with Pointon York and have been unsuccessful in recover your losses, then you should act now.
