Westbury Private Clients Mis-sold Pension Claims

westbury private clients

Were you advised by Westbury Private Clients to transfer your pension into a SELF INVESTED PERSONAL PENSION (SIPP) which was not in your best interests? Such schemes include car parks, storage pods, ethical forestry, overseas property, farmland, wines, antiques, bitcoins, eco-products, hotels and many more HIGH RISK investments offering HIGH % RETURNS that never materialised.


Some Main Mis-selling Reasons

  • The type of investment change was not clearly explained to you.

  • The Financial Adviser did not explain the higher level of risk the change may have attracted.

  • The Financial Adviser failed to take your, and your families financial circumstances into account.

  • You were not properly informed of how your money would be invested. 

  • The Financial Adviser did not carry out a "fact find" to assess your circumstances, risk attitude and financial goals.

  • You were encouraged to move into an investment that carried a greater risk than you were prepared for, like a SIPP that was not in your financial interests.


If you had £30,000+ in a defined or company pension scheme and were advised to move your pension into a SIPP get a FREE APPRAISAL. You can make a claim yourself, but we are experienced in financial claims, and more than happy to make the claim for you. Remember, our team are at your disposal.

What Types Of SIPP Were Mis-sold?

We have to be clear. Just because your pension pot may have devalued in recent years is not a reason to make a claim. The best way to understand if you have been mis-sold your pension and been the victim of SIPP mis-selling is to look at the nature of the product. If it was an exotic or non-standard investment product it may come under the mis-sold pension banner. 

There has been a wide range of SIPP investments that have become prominent in recent years. Most commonly:

  • Unlisted Shares

  • Renewable Energy

  • Overseas Property Investments

  • Eco Forestry

  • Car Park Schemes

  • Solar Power

  • Burial Plots

  • Art Investments

  • Farmland

  • Diamonds

  • Bio Fuels

  • Film Production

  • Antiques

  • Vintage Wines

  • Rain Forests

  • Care Homes

  • Green Oil

  • Storage Pods

It's Time To Make Your Claim


  • You had more than £30,000+ in a defined or company pension scheme before you were advised to move your pension into a SIPP.

  • You have contact details for both your original pension company and the company or Adviser who transferred your pension into the SIPP.

  • You have clear reasons (not just your pension pot has decreased in value) that you feel your pension transfer advice was wrong and unsuitable.



  • We will discuss your situation with you to determine if you have a valid claim. If we feel your claim is valid, we will send you a claim form.

  • Complete the claim form, letters of authority, terms and conditions and send back to us so we can approach both old & new pensions advisers..

  • You claim is underway. We will gather all the information we need to make a full assessment and present your missold pensions claim in a professional manner. 



  • It is expected the Pensions Adviser will defend the claim. Our expert team will re-enforce the case or even contact the Pensions Ombudsman. .

  • Should the Pensions Adviser have gone into administration we will present your claim to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

  • Once upheld, we will check all the necessary paperwork, calculations and regulations to ensure the amount of compensation awarded to you is correct.
