Anyone who pays a financial advisor for professional advice on investment has the right to expect that the person advising them will base their advice purely on the most sensible financial products available, rather than on external factors such as the products with the best commission. Unfortunately, people are all too frequently mis-sold financial products by financial advisors or institutions who are at best incompetent and at worst unscrupulous. Such mis-selling has increased in frequency over the last few years – the pension reforms of 2015 opened up the market in many beneficial ways but also allowed a far wider range of products to be sold to people, often to their detriment. Many investors have been pushed towards products and investments that are completely wrong and too high risk for the kind of secure and stable investment they would be looking for from their pension, for example. As a result, it is estimated that 1 in 3 pensions have been mis-sold in recent years and many people are now eligible for compensation because of mis-selling.
