Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPPs): What Is It?
The term SIPP (Self Invested Personal Pension) refers to a government approved personal pension scheme. Over one million UK nationals have taken advantage of SIPPs to grow their pension fund, after their introduction back in 1989. Since they depend on the performance of what the money goes into, SIPPs are said to be riskier that other types of investments.
Some properties, investments connected to environmental projects and investments abroad are specifically considered to be high risk. Unfortunately, a huge number of investors have lost their investment, mostly lifelong savings, due to the fact that SIPPs were mis-sold on a wide scale. The FSCS (Financial Services Compensation Scheme) has, after the revelation of the mis-sold SIPPs scandal, set up a hundred million pound compensation fund to settle mis-sold SIPPs claims.
If you identify with the following, then it’s likely that you are a victim of mis-selling. As such, you may have the grounds to make a SIPPs claim for compensation.
- Lack Of Knowledge: This applies to new investors who were advised to purchase an investment that they didn’t understand.
- Bad Advice: This applies to those who were in a pension fund that was well matched to their present and future needs but were advised to transfer their investment.
- Victims of Pressure/Hard Selling tactics: This applies to anyone who felt like they were pushed into an investment that they were never comfortable with from the start.
- Misadvised About The Taxes Involved: This applies to any investor who was not informed about the 55 percent income tax involved in investments surpassing the £40,000 annual limit.
- Tax Avoidance Strategy: This applies to any investor who was advised that investing in a SIPP would help them avoid paying taxes.
- Hidden Fees: This applies to investors who were never informed of any hidden fees involved at any point of the investment process.
- Misrepresentation Of The Level Of Risk Involved: This applies to investors who were never informed of any possible effects or risk level of investing in property.

Are All SIPPs In Operation Mis Sold SIPPs?
Not necessarily, however an awful lot of them are, personal pensions and the investments associated with them are so often sold into risky, half baked schemes with no real ethics applied or care for the private pensions’ of the victims who become involved in these arrangements.
Many peoples’ pensions have been invested into penny stocks and other risky investment items where their capital is at major risk, with no warning of what they are letting themselves in for or the losses they could incur as a result, all because the IFA (Independent financial adviser) or the SIPP introducer can have their commission for the sale, this is bad ethics and should be brought to justice.
Do You Have A SIPP Claim
Getting your head around whether or not you have been mis-sold is not easy. At least that’s the case for the average pension holder. In general, it’s usually your financial adviser’s fault or your IFA’s fault.
A person who provided you with pensions advice that is supposedly qualified to provide you with such advice could be at fault. It could also be someone at your bank or your pension provider who provided you with advice. What you want to do is figure out who sold you the pension and then you can go from there to figure out how everything got started. Did someone come to your house from out of nowhere, because this is a good place to start too.
An IFA could have done a lot of things or actually didn’t do that could mean you were mis-sold a SIPP pension. Do you want to know what some of them are? They include:
- Did they assess your capacity for loss and risk
- Did they analyze your past pension scheme
- Did they check to see if your money would have been better in your previous pension
- Did your IFA make big money by selling you the pension
Those are only a handful of examples of how you may have been mis-sold a SIPP pension. We can assess your case and situation to make sure you understand whether or not you have been mis-sold. After that, we can create a strategy to help you get the compensation that we believe you deserve.
