Mis-sold a financial product? Want to make a claim?

If you have been mis-sold a financial product which has caused you to lose money, call 0800 633 5730 and speak to us at Imperium Law for legal advice.

If you believe you have been mis-advised by an independent financial adviser and negligence can be proved, we can make a claim on your behalf.

We offer you free no-obligation advice. If after a review of your case we believe you could be due a payout we can represent you on a ‘No Win-No Fee’ basis.

Grounds for making a claim.

All independent financial advisors (IFAs) are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Where negligence can be proved it is possible to make a claim.

Losing money on an investment does not give grounds for a compensation claim on its own. If however you were mis-advised and the adviser failed to follow the FCA code of conduct, the situation is different and a claim is possible.

The test will be if another a reasonably competent and diligent professional adviser would also have offered the same advice. If they wouldn't have it may be possible to proceed with a claim.

Making a claim for professional negligence.

It will be necessary to show that you suffered significant financial loss and that the IFA failed in their duty of care to you.

For instance if they falsely represented their services or were negligent in terms of investments, you may have grounds to recover consequent losses.

Grounds for claims include:

  • The failure of an IFA to disclose a financial interest in a recommendation or transaction, such as receiving commission on the sale of a product.
  • The IFA failed to disclose a conflict of interest.
  • Mis-representation of the investment which led you to invest based on inaccurate information.
  • The advice you received was not suitable to your requirements.
  • You were not told of the risks involved with your investment.

When reviewing your claim we have to assess if the adviser was negligent, if this can be shown we can proceed with a claim on your behalf.

Claims can be made for:

  • pensions, mortgages and insurance services
  • banking and investments 
  • mis-selling of financial products

For a no-obligation review of your claim call 0800 633 5730 or fill in our contact form and we’ll call you back.
