Intrinsic & ER Network

Intrinsic & ER Network - The Great SIPP Scandal

It’s always sad to hear of anyone who loses money through no fault of their own, and this sadness is multiplied many times over when the sum of money involved is substantial. A number of men and women invested in the ER Network and Intrinsic, not to mention in any of a myriad of other companies linked to them, leading to significant losses for so many unsuspecting individuals.

Yet again, the victims were offered chances to invest their pension pots via Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs) with the tempting prospect of increasing returns and little or no risk. These people saw a chance to maximise their financial holding in readiness for a retirement that would be more comfortable, more enjoyable and with an opportunity to leave greater financial strength to their nearest and dearest.

As has been the case with a number of unregulated pension transfer schemes, the ones who did well out of the process were usually just the providers and the brokers. These individuals and organisations pushed their products ever more enthusiastically, bringing significant commissions along the way. There was plenty of money to be made, but it wasn’t that way for the investors.

Seek out some much-needed justice with our help

The ER Network had links with a significant number of organisations under or around its umbrella, most of which have now fallen by the wayside. Many investors were coerced into putting their money into schemes involving ethical plantation holdings and suchlike, but ultimately these failed to amount to much. In the end, a number of those involved attracted the attentions of the Serious Fraud Office.

If you feel you were a victim of this or any similar schemes, we might be able to help. Here at Beat the Banks, we offer a thorough and robust compensation claims service aimed at bringing you some much-needed justice. Instead of getting ever more distressed over an outcome you didn’t deserve, have a chat with our friendly team today on 0800 193 1234 and see what can be done about it. We’re waiting to hear from you.

All it takes is a few minutes of your time and we can take things from there. It’s never easy to come to terms with the fact that you may have been mis-sold a product or, worse, defrauded. One call to Beat the Banks could be enough to set the record straight.

  • Mrs C, Glasgow

    “From beginning to end, Beat the Banks have been very efficient. I am very pleased with the service from Jenna and the team. I am highly delighted and I have been recommending all of my friends.”

  • Shona, Dundee

    “Huge thank you to the team. After attempting to claim PPI myself and getting absolutely nowhere, I got Beat the Banks involved and ended up getting  £12,000. What a result. Beat the Banks made it so easy and were committed right to the end.”

  • Mr A McQuillian

    “From previous experience of PPI claim companies, I was a bit dubious if anyone could help me but I thought I would try Beat The Banks. To say I am pleased with the service and conclusion to my claim is an understatement. Beat the banks and my claim handler in particular handled all aspects of the claim from Clydesdale Bank with professionalism, courtesy, and efficiency to secure a positive result on my behalf. I would certainly recommend the services of Beat the Banks to anyone who thinks they have PPI claim, especially with the Clydesdale Bank.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “I was apprehensive about using a company to claim my PPI as I had previously responded to a “cold call” and was pestered with calls. I heard about Beat The Banks on a local radio station and because they were based in Scotland I felt comfortable approaching them. I have had a very positive experience with Beat The Banks. They are not pushy and answer any queries timeously. All the Agents I have spoken to were knowledgeable, polite and friendly. After the initial information gathering conversation, they understood my needs and just got on with my claim. No hassle. Even when it was clear that my claim was of a relatively low value they processed without delay. I would definitely recommend using Beat The Banks …. they put all the other companies out there to shame.”

  • T & A, Dundee

    “Down entirely to Mike’s hard work, we previously had a successful claim with Clydesdale Bank. Mike was convinced we had more loans with PPI and he was relentless in efforts to recover our paperwork from the bank. Finally, after many attempts, enough records were recovered to submit several claims. We have now received much more compensation, covering loans going back many, many years. If it had not been for Mike and the team at Beat the Banks this would never, ever have happened. Literally, all we did was sign our name and bank the cheque.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

  • Mr & Mrs M, Shetland

    “We really appreciate the doggedness and professionalism of Jenna and the team at Beat the Banks. This is something we’d never have gotten round to doing and we’re so glad we went through the process with professionals as we’ve now had great results. Only positives have come from the experience.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “Excellent service so helpful, I received a substantial sum back that I had no idea I was due, thank you again to Beat The Banks especially to Gary who was so helpful and efficient in every way.”

  • Dave & Linda , Dundee

    “We had no paperwork but £52,500 reasons to say thank you, we are now living our Spanish dream! Exceptional service.”

  • Mr S, Dingwall

    “Have just found out I have won all my cases with the bank, going back many years and been awarded compensation of just over £15,000!”
