Torch Wealth Management to pay up over SIPP advice

Why checking your pension advice for negligence might save your retirement

Financial advice firm Economic Financial Solutions IFA, which also went by the name of Torch Wealth Management, is set to pay a client compensation over SIPP pension advice.

The Financial Ombudsman Service decided that Mr M’s complaint should be upheld, after he said he had suffered “severe financial losses” as a result of Torch Wealth Management’s advice.

What Did Torch Wealth Management Do?

Even though Mr M was self-employed earning a gross earnings of around £18,000 per year, Torch Wealth Management decided that he should reinvest his £95,000 pension in an “Aggressive Model Portfolio” of investments.

But in the following months, concerns were raised about the investments made within the portfolio.

Torch said that the investments made by the broker “bore no reassemble” to the type of investment which Torch had recommended, but the Ombudsman said that the firm should pay Mr M redress that would put him back in the position he was in before he received pension advice.

Have You Moved To A SIPP Pension?
