SVS Securities Goes into Administration – Could You Claim?

Home » News & Knowledge » SVS Securities Goes into Administration – Could You Claim?

In August 2019 The Financial Conduct Authority (‘The FCA’) put the financial advisor and investment provider SVS Securities Ltd into default and the firm has consequently entered administration.

The decision by the FCA arises as a consequence of the firm’s general lack of due diligence, their failure to advise clients adequately on how risky proposed investments actually were and the mismanagement of investor money.

The FCA also commented that it had ‘serious concerns about the way in which the business was operating’ and it therefore took the decision to ‘impose requirements on SVS stopping it from conducting regulated activities and restricting it from disposing of its own or its clients’ assets’.

Despite SVS Securities going into administration however, both former and current clients may still be able to bring claims either to recover money held on deposit with SVS or to recover money lost as a result of poor advice to invest pension money or savings.



Have you been affected?

1. Did SVS Securities advise you to transfer your pension?
2. Did SVS Securities advise you to invest in stocks, bonds or property?
3. Did SVS Securities advise you to invest in Contracts For Difference (CFD)?

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