St Martin's Partners LLP worked closely with the unregulated introducer, First Review Pension Service.
You may recall First Review Pension Service and Lifestyle Connection featured in a Panorama documentary in 2016.
The companies were in trouble for arranging free pension reviews and arranged for couriers to collate ID’s and pension information directly from clients’ home and work addresses.
The Resort Group Investments
They gave sales information in relation to setting up SIPPs or Qualified Regulated Overseas Pension Schemes (QROPS) and investments in the Cape Verde-based hotel development The Resort Group.
The Resort Group (TRG), which owned the two introducers, decided that Lifestyle Connections and First Review would stop taking new business after the report was aired.
Shortly afterwards a new firm was set up, Pension Connect, with same directors and staff.
Final Salary Pension Transfers
You may have been introduced to a number of companies such as St Martin’s Partners LLP or a related firm, Felicitas Management Investment Services Limited.
Felicitas is based in Cyprus and only holds temporary permissions on the FCA register.
As the firm was not authorised or regulated to provided to give pension advice they utilised the services of St Martin’s Partners LLP in relation to the transfer of Final Salary pensions.
Transfers were arranged to Harbour Pensions Limited in Malta which have since been taken over by STM Malta Pension Services Limited, a member of STM Group
Investments were arranged into TRG Bonds as well as other DFM investments.
