If you feel you have been given poor pensions advice that led to you losing money, we at Beat the Banks would like to hear from you. Whether you dealt directly with the pension scheme provider or perhaps you were advised and encouraged by unregulated introducers, one call to our specialists on 0800 193 1234 is all you need. We look forward to hearing from you very soon.

In recent landmark rulings in the UK’s courts, pension providers were told they had a duty of care towards investors, and that they should bear the responsibility for the quality of the business in which they are asking customers to invest. Carey Pensions, like many others, have been involved in cases which led to a great deal of legal wrangling about the suitability of investing in certain schemes.

It’s so sad to hear of innocent people losing huge sums of money on Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs) without necessarily understanding the risks they could be taking. Unregulated introducers and advisors earn large commissions when they persuade investors to sign on the dotted line, so their advice should always be taken with more than a pinch of salt.

Investment vehicles that sounded too good to be true…and they were

We’ve seen a wide range of schemes involving investment in everything from storage pods via Store First and overseas hotels to green energy programmes and forestry projects in far-flung nations. Investors, keen to eke that little bit more from their pension pots before they retire, have proven to be easy targets for some of the more unscrupulous advisors and introducers.

A number of companies that were once extremely active in the pension investment sector have fallen by the wayside, often as a result of locking horns with the Financial Conduct Authority and the Financial Ombudsman. Court cases are common, but this isn’t a surprise when you consider the hundreds of millions of pounds that has been involved over the years.

It’s not always easy for the victims of mis-sold pension advice to speak about their experiences, but the Beat the Banks team offer a sympathetic ear right from the start. We can bring you honest, straightforward advice about what to do next, so why not give us a call today on 0800 193 1234? If you prefer, you can use our simple online contact form instead. It really is as easy as that to make a difference.

  • 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.”

  • 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!”
