Who is SVS securities?

SVS Securities was a wealth management firm that offered a number of services to clients, including stockbroking, share dealing, fund management.

The firm went into administration in 2019 after the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) blocked them from conducting new business; citing serious concerns about their questionable commission arrangements and the promotion of high-risk bonds to clients.

SVS were accused of lacking due diligence and advising clients to transfer their pensions into high-risk and unsuitable ventures, particularly given most people transferring their pensions weren’t considered the type of seasoned investor to plough money into high-risk schemes.

The FCA also found that SVS Securities had been charging high fees to customers through commissions and charges, with some seeing their investment pot reduced by more than a fifth through these fees.

Over £278m of assets and cash was obtained through SVS’s liquidation and broker ITI Capital were charged with distributing this to investors in July 2020.

Do SVS securities still trade?

No, the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) blocked them from conducting business in August 2019, after identifying concerns over their questionable business practices.


What is a mis-sold SIPP?

A mis-sold SIPP (self invested personal pension) can happen when a financial adviser or pension provider either advises or acts in a way that is negligent by the standards set by the UK regulator – the Financial Conduct Authority.

This could be because the money would have been better inside a Defined Benefit pension or because the investments inside were unsuitable for the pension saver.

For example, you may have been advised to transfer your pension into an investment that’s considered high-risk without knowing about what you’re investing in and the risks involved. You may have even been guaranteed an unlikely return on your investment.

If this is the case, you may have a claim to make. For more advice about mis-sold SIPPs, you can contact us here for a FREE consultation.

Could you make a SVS Securities claim?

Already several financial advisors, as well as the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCA), have paid out compensation to those who were mis-sold, so you may have a claim to make.

You could be owed compensation if you:

  • Transferred your pension to a SIPP
  • Aren’t a sophisticated investor
  • Were pressured into making an investment
  • Were guaranteed a return on your investment

If any of the above apply to you and your relationship with SVS Securities, it doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed compensation, but you may still be able to make a claim.
