St Martin’s Partners LLP (SMP) worked closely with First Pension Review Service who are an unregulated introducer.


First Review Pension Service and Lifestyle Connection featured in a Panorama documentary in 2016.


The companies arranged free pension reviews and arranged for couriers to go directly to a potential investors home to collate pension information, anti-money laundering information and basic client information.


They gave sales information in relation to setting up SIPPs or Qualified Regulated Overseas Pension Schemes (QROPS) and investments in the Cape Verde-based hotel development The Resort Group.


The Resort Group (TRG), which owned the two introducers, decided that Lifestyle Connections and First Review would stop taking new business after the report was aired.
