Advisors try to cash in on their own mistakes

Directors, who mis-sold products through a failed company, are starting up again and taking on the claims of  their failed company’s creditors  and are making claims to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is now banning directors of failed financial advice companies from being involved in such companies.

The FCA estimate that consumers lose about £2.4m a year from claims made through a phoenixed firm.

Advice firms are up in arms as the FSCS pay compensation through a levy system funded by their members and the bill this year is £833m as opposed to £532m last year.
