Are you owed compensation due to SIPP mis-selling?

Pensions can be one of the most tax-efficient forms of long-term investment. The SIPP scheme (Self Invested Personal Pension) is a personal pension scheme approved by the UK government. SIPPs act as ‘wrappers' and allow investors to have the freedom to use a wider range of investments and products in order to grow their pension fund.

What is a SIPP?

Although the exact tax situation will depend on the investor's personal circumstances, a SIPP can offer up to 45% tax relief on contributions and no capital gains tax or additional income tax to pay in the UK. SIPPs don't curtail the range of investments an investor can choose from and can include investments from a variety of sources, even overseas.

However, due to the wide range of the investments allowed in a SIPP and the fact that they usually follow a recommendation from your financial adviser and not the SIPP company, the capital can end up being placed into riskier unregulated investments, such as high-risk commercial property, carbon credits, bio diesel and forestry. This increases the risk that the investor will lose their pension fund.

Am I owed compensation for SIPP mis-selling?

Did you buy a SIPP because you wanted to take control of your retirement planning, with the flexibility of being able to choose how your money is invested? Did you later find out that you've been given inadequate advice or even misled about the risk involved? If so, you may have been a victim of SIPP mis-selling - and you may be able to make a mis-sold SIPP claim.

Did your advisor do any of the following:

Suggest transferring to a SIPP as it was better than traditional personal pensions?

Recommend a SIPP but not the investments within the SIPP?

Promote the use of SIPPs for tax rather than pension benefits?

Fail to provide you with adequate information on all the potential risks?
