Based in Dyfed, 1 Stop Financial Services has since ceased trading amid massive allegations of mis-selling and financial mis-conduct.

So much so that directors Andrew Rees and Timothy Hughes were both fined thousands of pounds and the company we de-authorised by the FCA in April 2014, banned from restarting the business.

1 Stop became infamous for mis-sold SIPPs following a spree between Oct 2010 and November 2012 where it gave advice to over 2000 individuals leading to SIPP investments and transfers totalling over £122m.

As a damning article in the Professional Advisor says, these individuals were regularly not checked for suitability, the investments were often not regulated and the company failed to declare a conflict of interest to clients, taking a fee from the introducer firm too.

1 Stop Financial Service is known to have given advice on Carbon Credits Investments, and Overseas Property.

If you dealt with 1 Stop over your pension transfer or SIPP investments, it may be time to get on the phone to Spencer Churchill Claims Advice to see if you can make a mis-sold pension claim.

How Did 1 Stop Financial Services Get Things Wrong?

All pension investments carry risk, but some are HIGH RISK investments.

These investments often offer higher returns to help grow a pension pot faster (something advisers and pension introducers are keen to stress), but they also come with more risk (something some advisers neglect to mention or play-down).

This might be fine for people who can afford to take on that sort of risk, either because they are earning plenty of money or understand those risks.

But for an average pension investor, they may be unsuitable and could devastate their retirement prospects.

1 Stop Financial Services widely mis-sold a number of these high-risk investments through SIPP pensions, were caught out for it, and are no-longer trading.

Can You Make A 1 Stop Financial Services Claim?

Several financial advisers and the FSCS have been paying out compensation for the mis-selling of investments via SIPPs and SSASs for a few years, with Spencer Churchill Claims Advice often leading the claim on a No Win – No Fee* basis.

If you:

  • Transferred your pension to a SIPP
  • Made high-risk investments
  • Aren’t earning over £100k per year
  • Aren’t a Sophisticated Investor

Then you may have been mis-sold, and you could be able to make a claim for negligent SIPP advice.

1 Stop Timeline

  • SIPP Mis-Selling


    Between 2010 and November 2012, 1Stop Financial services took clients introduced by marketing companies and advised many to transfer their pensions into SIPPs, and investment in high-risk investments. Many of these transactions have now been found at fault.

  • FCA Action


    On 17 April 2014, the FCA announced that 1Stop was no-longer authorised to conduct regulated financial activities, and 2 partners at the firm had been banned from having ANY significant influence over regulated companies. They were fined a total of £490,100.

  • Legacy


    In 2019 the legacy one 1 Stop Financial Services’ pension advice lives on. Many investments they recommended have since collapsed or got into difficulty.

Do you know how people complained about mis-sold investments and pensions in the last year?

A lot. Over twenty thousand complaints were made about mis-sold pensions and investments in 2020/21, a figure which had doubled since the year before.. It’s no secret how serious this problem is, and it just seems to keep getting worse.

People receive poor financial advice every day. Sometimes they don’t even realise that they’re owed whopping amounts of compensation.
