Often, the client is NOT suitable for these sorts of investments, and the advice is deemed to be negligent.

Archer Bramley is know to have told people to invest in CFDs, The Resort GroupForestry Schemes and Store First Ltd.

If this has happened to you, you may be able to make a mis-sold SIPP claim on a no upfront cost basis.
