Pension stolen from SIPP

After trying to fight this case myself for years, I put my trust into Oakwood Solicitors, who kept me informed every step of the way and managed to get me compensation for the pension which was stolen. They managed to get back almost all what I lost. Special thank you to Daniel.

The experts in Financial Litigation claims

Oakwood Solicitors Ltd specialises in Financial mis-selling claims. We have a Financial Litigation team dedicated to assisting clients who have lost money as a consequence of negligent advice in relation to a financial product, such as an investment or pension.

What went wrong with GPG/Dolphin Capital?

The German Property Group (GPG) – formerly Dolphin Trust and Dolphin Capital GmbH – was an unregulated property investment scheme, specialising in the purchase of listed German buildings and refurbishing them into luxury apartments.

It promised highly lucrative returns on investments. Typically it offered loan notes providing fixed returns of between 10% and 15% up to a term of 5 years.
Early investors were repaid promptly encouraging them to re-invest.

In recent years the loan note payments have not been made and client have been left in the dark.


BBC Investigation

In 2019 a BBC investigation revealed that The German Property Group which borrowed an estimated £600m from UK investors, mostly from the life savings of hard working people were months late in paying some of them back.

It has now filed for bankruptcy. While the full extent of the losses are currently not ascertainable, Oakwood Solicitors will complete a full review of your file and advise of the next steps.

What are my options?

If you had an investment with German Property Group, then the likelihood is that you will have lost money and could be entitled to compensation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much compensation will I receive?

We cannot provide an exact figure for how much compensation you will receive until we understand more about your claim.

The general purpose of a claim is to put you back in the position you would have been in, had you not received the negligent pension advice.

As your claim will probably be against the FSCS then the compensation cap is either £50,0000 or £85,000.00 per person, per advisor. The cap is dependent on when the advisor who gave you the advice stopped trading.

How much will a claim cost?

We operate on a Damages Based Agreement (“DBA”) more commonly known as a ‘no-win, no-fee’ agreement. If we fail to secure you a settlement, you will not be charged. If we successfully recover compensation, then our charges are 30% plus VAT of any compensation payment. These charges will be deducted from the compensation payment at the end of the claim process.

How long does a claim take?

As the claim is being made against the FSCS then we would expect the claim to be concluded within 12 months.

As each case is unique it is difficult to provide a generic timeframe for conclusion of the claim however Oakwood Solicitors will give you an indication of how long your claim is likely to take to conclude as part of our initial review.
