Planet Pensions S.R.O. enters liquidation
The Czech Republic based company Planet Pensions, formerly known as Square Mile Financial, went into liquidation in January 2021.
Square Mile provided some customers with unsuitable advice, advising them to transfer their pensions into the Forthplus SIPP. Transferring your pension into a SIPP in order to invest in unregulated investments or in sacrifice of defined benefits, is generally regarded as unsuitable for most people, and often customers don’t know or understand the risks they are exposing themselves and their pensions to.
The Industry’s lifeboat fund, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS),is now accepting claims against Square Mile.
If you have had any past dealings with Planet Pensions/Square Mile Financial, then you could be entitled to claim compensation. Our experts have dealt with hundreds of FSCS claims and can guide you through the process on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.
