The mis-selling of investment products in the UK is more prevalent than you might assume. People are increasingly investing in Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs), Investment bonds, Stocks and Share ISAs, as well as Personal Equity Plans as a way to invest for the future. Unfortunately, this has led to customers into investing in high-risk investments whose consequences can be devastating.
If you have taken out a financial investment, and have not been, advised of the risks.
Then it is likely that you can claim compensation for any financial loss that you may have incurred as a result.

What Are Mis-Sold Investment Claims?

If an investment was mis-sold to you, it means that you bought it after receiving either inaccurate or unsuitable advice. Perhaps the risks weren’t clearly explained to you or were not given the full information required to make an informed decision if an investment was mis-sold. The result is ending up with an unsuitable product for your needs.

Mis-selling as it happens in the financial industry can be done by independent financial advisors, brokers, bank representatives, or even other salespersons dealing in financial services or products. According to the Financial Conduct Authority, financial services should be sold to you in a transparent, fair, and non-misleading manner.

Professionals dealing with financial products and services are required to work in the best interests of their clients and advise them to buy something suitable for their needs. They are also obligated to explain correctly what such products can and cannot do. All risks should be described; otherwise, you can make a mis-sold investment claim and receive compensation.

Mis-Sold Investment Claims

Whether you have lost money or not, if you have been the victim of mis-selling, it is possible to make a claim. The same is however not valid if a legitimate investment performs poorly and you had been informed about the potential risks.

Here are some of the most common investments in the UK that could lead to mis-sold investment claims:
