About Beat the Banks

Expertly helping people since 2011

We're the financial claims experts

Established in 2011 and based in Dundee, we’ve already helped thousands of customers all over the UK recover compensation for financial mis-selling.

Led by Mike Begg, who has worked in banking and finance for over 40 years, the Beat the Banks team is packed full of experience. We use our extensive industry knowledge to go that extra mile to help victims who’ve suffered a financial loss as a result of faulty pension transfer advice or been declined a claim for life insurance, critical illness, or income protection.

We can also help if you’ve been mis-sold a Spanish timeshare since 1999 or been the victim of a hidden commission paid on a car finance agreement. Our team is here to answer any questions you have. We will always be upfront, honest and frank – if we think we can help out we will carefully explain the procedure and the cost involved in the event you have a successful claim.

Beat the Banks is a CMC. You can claim for free, without using a CMC, first to your provider or to the FOS/FSCS/TPO. Click here for more information.
