We salute the FSCS for changing its stance on Hartley Pensions’ Exit and administration fee (EAC)!

They have finally decided that the fees can be protected under their rules.

Whilst the FSCS initially stated that they did not believe there was a protected claim, they have now confirmed that they reviewed new evidence and decided that the EAC can be protected!

The EAC is intended to cover costs, including the costs for customers to transfer to other regulated companies where possible, until Hartley’s administration has concluded.

This is good news for all clients who were worried that they would have to pay fees and charges without a way to recovery.

Hartley SIPP Charges

Generally speaking, Hartley’s clients have not been best pleased with the services of the SIPP provider or the administrators – which is understandable.

Whilst people with good-performing investments may have encountered issues like being unable to access their funds, transfer out or receive annual statements, larger numbers of clients ceased to receive annual statements or valuations once their pension value reduced to £5000 or less, many years ago, leaving them completely in the dark in regards to what was happening with their pension pot.

Yet, all are being charged annual fees for a non-existent service and the mess others have left behind.

Hartley’s administration team has been overwhelmed and has been struggling with huge backlogs in providing information to clients, the FSCS as well as solicitors or CMC’s for over 2 years.

We hope that all clients, but especially people whose original SIPP was with either the Lifetime SIPP, Guinness Mahon, Greyfriars, Berkeley Burke or the GPC SIPP (Guardian Pension Consultants) can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel as fees can be recovered – and they no longer have to engage in a battle against the administrators.

Impartial Claims Advice

We may be able to assist you with the recovery of any losses you’ve suffered if you had a SIPP with any of the firms we have mentioned, even if you have tried to claim yourself and your IFA or SIPP due diligence complaint has been rejected.

Let us review the transactions made – and if we can’t help, you won’t pay a fee.

You may find that we can help where others couldn’t – and not only have we got the customer feedback to prove it, we also charge a fraction of what solicitors charge for the work they carry out.

You should also get in touch with us if you have any concerns about the advice you received or the way your investments are performing.

Most clients don’t understand that they may have suffered losses, as their annual statements show that the pension fund is still valued at purchase price.

We have been fighting your corner for years – and may just know a trick or two, to help you finally obtain compensation!
