Beaufort Securities hit with fresh wave of complaints

Beaufort Securities Complaints

A “steady stream” of complaints about Beaufort Securities has been rolling into the Financial Ombudsman Services, with a newly upheld complaint just published.

The “troubled” investment portfolio manager has agreed with the watch-dog to restrict the activities of its DFM (portfolio management) business, and in 2017, Beaufort wrote to some clients to say that it believed some may have been mis-sold its own products by their financial adviser.

Complaint Against Beaufort Securities upheld.

A “Mr M” complained that Beaufort “mismanaged his portfolio by making investments that did not match his risk profile” – a complaint that was upheld by the Ombudsman, which has the power to settle disputes between companies and those that use them.

Mr M invested £85,000 with Beaufort from 2014 onwards, but by late 2016, he noticed the fund value had dropped to around £68,000, and some investments exceeded the levels of risk he had wanted.

The Ombudsman has asked Beaufort to pay fair compensation.

The FOS also said that they were looking into a number of complaints about Beaufort raised over the last 10 months.
