Nottingham-based IFA Archer Bramley Limited is a name well known to the specialist Case Handlers at Get Claims Advice, having scrutinised their SIPP pension advice on many occasions and fought for compensation on behalf of our clients.
Archer Bramley hit the financial news a few years ago, following criticism from clients in 2010, before it was declared in default by the FSCS (couldn’t pay claims against it) and subsequently entered into a liquidation in December 2014…

Over the years, the team at Get Claims Advice have seen plenty of cases where a financial adviser, just like Archer Bramley Limited, has transferred pensions into SIPPs containing high-risk investments, often unregulated by the FCA leaving no compensation for the client should anything go wrong.

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