City regulators are launching a new campaign with the intention of targeting savers in their 40s, 50s and 60s about the ongoing rise in pension fraud scams, as well as making it easier to establish whether the companies they deal with are authorised.
New data shows that the average pension fraud victim loses £91,000, which is a devastating blow for individuals planning for a secure future – many having to start from scratch or left facing a long battle for compensation or justice.
It is a reminder that pension savers should never respond to unexpected phone calls, texts, or social media and email approaches offering unrealistic returns on their savings – our Chartered Financial Planner accreditation means you can be sure that you are dealing with a reputable company.
Here at The Financial Planning Group, we have over 25 years’ experience in advising clients on planning for the future in a secure and structured way. As Chartered Financial Planners, we employ sophisticated ‘future-forecasting’ software to aid in the advice process, where we can model various retirement scenarios and stress test them all. Our company ethos is all about providing our clients with peace of mind.
