Mis-Sold Investment Claims

When taking professional advice about a possible financial investment, you put your trust in an industry professional. You hope they have your best interests in mind.
Unfortunately, over the last couple of years there has been numerous cases in the UK of both financial advisors and institutions giving negligent advice and mis-selling these investments.
The majority of the time, the investor is unaware of the high risks involved when making a financial investment.

What Are Mis-Sold Investment Claims?

If an investment was mis-sold to you, this means you purchased it after receiving inaccurate or negligent financial advice. The risks of the investment were maybe not explained or you were not given all the information to make an informed decision. 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.

These professionals are required to work in the best interest of their clients and advise accordingly. All potential risks should be outlined before selling the investment.

Mis-Sold Investment Claims

If you have lost money or believe you were given negligent investment advice, it is possible to recuperate some money with a claim. However if the legitimate investment has not performed and you had been informed about the risk, you can not claim.

Below are some of the most common investments in the UK which could lead to a mis-sold investment claim:
