The FSCS has declared another 25 firms in default, meaning that they are satisfied that the firms can’t pay claims made against them for things like negligent advice
25 more firms have been added to the ever-growing list of financial services outfits that don’t have the dough to pay claims for compensation made against them. The Financial Services Compensation Scheme, which released the list on the 9 July 2017, is setup to payout compensation for those people who have been wronged by an IFA or other service provider regulated by the FCA, but only when the firm is unable to pay the client itself through a direct claim, or if commanded to by the Ombudsman.

You can find a list of more commonly sold (or mis-sold) high risk investments here.
