BARTHOLOMEW HAWKINS LIMITED & FINAL SALARY PENSIONS
In January 2018, Bartholomew Hawkins, a financial advice firm created in 2005, was named in an article as one of the 13 firms that were no-longer allowed to give advice on Final Salary pension transfers since 2015.
All financial advice companies that want to be able to give people advice on the complexities of whether it is suitable to transfer their valuable final salary pension need to be regulated to do so by the FCA, in an effort to ensure that they stick to the rules and give advice in their client’s best interests.
But if the FCA has cause for concern of the advice a firm gives, it can restrict their ability to give advice, and following a visit from the FCA in 2017, Bartholomew Hawkins Ltd ceased giving DB pension transfer advice.
If you transferred your final salary or other type of defined pension with Bartholomew Hawkins, you can have your advice checked by our specialist case assessors. It could be that you are able to make a claim.
