HT Legal Encourages Individuals to Seek Assistance and Expands Financial Services Claims Team to Address Rising Pension Claims

HT Legal, a leading legal firm specialising in financial services claims, is urging individuals who have concerns about their pension arrangements to come forward and seek assistance.

In response to a significant increase in pension claims across the UK, the firm has announced the expansion of its Financial Services Claims team. The surge in claims, often referred to as SIPP claims, has revealed instances of mismanagement and misconduct by Financial Advisers, SIPP providers, and Fund Managers regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). These claims primarily involve unsuitable investments such as Harlequin, Store First, The Resort Group, and others, which have resulted in substantial losses for clients, eroding their hard-earned pension funds.

“We strongly encourage anyone who has concerns about their pension investments or the advice they have received to get in touch with us,” said Tony Carter, Managing Director at HT Legal. “Many individuals may be unaware of their rights or the potential for compensation. Our dedicated team is here to provide a free consultation, either over the phone or online, to determine whether there are grounds for a claim before any formal commitment is required.”

While the focus has primarily been on claims against advisers involved in unregulated investments, HT Legal is also giving attention to other areas where regulated companies, including financial advisers and pension providers, have treated clients unfairly. These cases range from advising clients to move out of highly regarded Defined Benefit Pension Schemes to persuading them to transfer workplace schemes into private pension schemes, often motivated by self-interest to generate fees for the advisers.

Instances of poor advice and overcharging have become prevalent in the industry, with complaints on the rise even against reputable firms like St James’s Place and Royal Sunlife of Canada. Clients have reported unnecessary transfers and unjustified fees, including payments for services they have not received, such as annual reviews. Shockingly, many individuals who opted for pension transfers have incurred financial losses due to increased charges and underperforming funds.

“At HT Legal, we believe that individuals should not have to tolerate substandard practices or suffer financial losses due to poor advice,” added Tony Carter. “We are committed to utilising the resources of the Financial Ombudsman Service and the Financial Services Compensation Scheme to help our clients obtain the redress or compensation they rightfully deserve.”

To ensure quick and effective outcomes, HT Legal collaborates with industry experts to navigate the complex landscape of financial services claims, maximising compensation and redress for their clients. The expanded team possesses extensive expertise in handling diverse cases and adopts a meticulous approach to every claim.

“Our team works tirelessly to ensure that our clients receive swift and maximised compensation or redress,” noted Tony Carter. “We understand the impact that poor pension advice or mismanagement can have on individuals’ financial futures. Our mission is to provide them with the support, guidance, and legal representation necessary to rectify these injustices.”

HT Legal urges individuals who have concerns about their pension arrangements to come forward and seek assistance. The firm offers a complimentary consultation over the phone or online, enabling prospective claimants to determine whether they have grounds for a claim before making any formal commitments. Furthermore, HT Legal operates on a strictly no-win, no-fee basis, providing clients with peace of mind and a risk-free approach to pursuing their claims.
