Like some of our customers who were given pension transfer advice by the Independent Benefit Consultancy from Glasgow (IBC) you may have been the victim of a cold call by “Step Right Solutions,” or another company calling themselves “DB Redress”. Disturbingly, victims are told not to worry if they don’t have any information regarding their pension switch as they have all their records.
Beat the Banks, on behalf of victims, have called the respective numbers back and were somewhat surprised when the calls were then answered as Simon Adams Solicitors.
Cold calling is in direct breach of SRA regulation. Beat the Banks hold a copy of Simon Adams client agreement confirming they charge 30% plus vat (a total of 36%) on successful cases. Successful claimants with Beat the Banks typically pay substantially less.
Beat the Banks continue to help a constant stream of IBC victims. We have built up a huge knowledge of both the IBC’s practices together with the over 100 firms that they took in pension transfer referrals from. Did you know that the Independent Benefit Consultancy and their referral partners completely failed to disclose that the huge initial advice fees charged were split between both parties? To find out more, here is the link to our dedicated page.
If you were advised to transfer your workplace defined benefit pension by the IBC, or any other firm of financial advisers, Beat the Banks offer a completely free and no obligation check. We specialise in claims for financial mis-selling and since 2011 have recovered substantially more than £40 million for our customers.
