I was so pleased

I had the best experience from Oakwood Solicitors where they helped me get big compensation from FSCS. Not only that, just within 4 days' time of literally submitting the claim, I received the amount in my account.

- N. Shah

Excellent service! Thank you

Once again I have received excellent service from Oakwood Solicitors in dealing with my mis-sold pension claim. Without the help of the team I would've not been able to recover £50,000. Excellent work! Thank you once again.

What went wrong with Kingsway Wealth Management?

Between February 2014 and June 2019, thirteen cases were raised against Kingsway with the Financial Ombudsman Service.

Nine of the above case were upheld against the firm and all 9 related to SIPP transfers made with the advice of Kingsway. The cases all referred to the firm failing to conduct appropriate due diligence to ensure that the investments were suitable for their clients.

All of these were where a client was advised to transfer from another pension to a SIPP, five of them concerning unregulated investments.

Examples of unregulated investments include the Eco Fuel Green Oil fund, other “green oil” investments and Cyprus One, an overseas property scheme.

By 2018 the firm had racked up almost £2m in contingent liabilities from complaints about pension transfers to SIPPs

On 18 October 2019, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) ordered the firm to “immediately cease all regulated activities except where the Firm has obtained the prior written consent of the FCA”. The FCA also placed a number of restrictions upon the firm.

Kingsway Wealth Management filed for administration on 12 December 2019.

Have you been affected?

  • Did Kingsway Wealth Management advise you to transfer your pension?
  • Has your pension decreased or been lost completely?

If you answered yes to either of the above questions, please contact us urgently as we may be able to help!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I’ve been mis-sold a SIPP?

It is important to note that not all SIPPs are mis-sold. If you are unsure if you were mis-sold a SIPP then check out the common mis-selling features below.

It is likely that you were mis-sold a SIPP if you:

magnifying glass

Were not given the full cost breakdown for management fees or additional costs attached to the investment

shield coins

Invested without fully receiving an explanation of the risks including the potential to lose your pension

phone coins

Were cold called by a 3rd party company

house clock coins

Had been told your investment would grow considerably and would provide a large return

hand coins

Were pressured into acting quickly or because you were told you would risk losing out

nest egg £

Were told that you could take a large lump sum of cash out of your pension or access the pension before your retirement age

How much will it cost to make a claim?

  • We operate on a Conditional Fee Agreement more commonly known as a no win no fee
  • If we fail to secure you a settlement, you will not be charged
  • Any charges will be deducted from your settlement so you will not need to pay us anything out of your own pocket unless there is a reinstatement of the pension

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 £85,000.00 per person, per advisor.

What do I do now?

Provide us with some information about your pension transfer and we will advise you if you have a viable claim. There is absolutely no obligation to proceed. You can provide information or get in touch by:
