Hughmans in the Upper Tribunal

27th September 2019

Luke Gittos of Hughmans Solicitors is instructed in a series of references to the Upper Tribunal relating to decision notices issued by the Financial Conduct Authority. The notices allege the improper provision of advice to make pension switches into Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs) with underlying assets which were allegedly unsuitable for retail investors. The alleged conduct occurred between 2012 and 2015. The case resulted in £5.6 million in compensation being awarded to customers by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

Luke acts for four individuals and one company in the proceedings.

A timetable for the case was set out at a directions hearing on Wednesday. The case has received extensive media coverage.

If you are facing an investigation by the FCA, or if you have been issued with a decision notice, then get in touch.
