Following recent trading restrictions and at the Financial Conduct Authority's request, Hartley Pensions has been placed in administration.
The FCA published an update on 29th July advising Hartley Pension clients that they would receive a letter outlining next steps. This could mean being able to claim compensation through the Government backed Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) set up to help customers of failed firms.
The FCA said:
“The Ombudsman and the FSCS will be working closely with the FCA and the joint administrators to agree an appropriate course of action.
“The Ombudsman Service will contact you in due course regarding the next steps. The FSCS will also update its website with any news or important developments regarding its investigations.”
