Plan65 Ltd was a regulated firm which provided pension advice. You may know the firm as DK Consulting Ltd, or as Plan65 Ltd trading as Davidson Rae Financial Management.

In December 2020 the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) made a decision against the firm in relation to providing unsuitable pension transfer advice.

The client had been introduced to them from another financial advice company

The other firm had been advising the client on the purchase of an overseas property using his pension funds.

Plan65 say it only advised on the transfer of his previous pension fund to a SIPP and didn’t advise on the underlying overseas property investment. However, regulatory rules are strict and the FOS ruled that the advice was not suitable.
