The Pensions Office – Update


Many of our clients will recognise the name Keith Popplewell.

Mr Popplewell was the Managing Director of The Pensions Office Limited based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire; a firm of Independent Financial Advisors holding themselves out as having expertise in the advice and arrangement of pension transfers.

The Pensions Office Limited was declared in ‘default’ by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) in 2015 and we have already pursued, successfully, FSCS claims against them for mis-selling self-invested personal pensions (SIPPs). The SIPP investments that were recommended to our clients were high risk and unregulated, such as property overseas and self-storage units based in the UK.

And today, it has been reported that Mr Popplewell has been banned from acting as a Company Director for a staggering nine years.

If you received advice from The Pensions Office Limited to transfer your traditional pension in to a SIPP, contact Hugh James’s Financial Mis-Selling Team for free, no obligation advice on 029 2039 1188.
