Foreman Financial Services, which also trades as Grainger Co Financial Services, mis-sold SIPP pension products to clients across the UK. Foreman Financial Services was registered as a Private Limited Company in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. The company was originally incorporated in October 2003, and formally dissolved on 31 July 2018.
Foreman Financial Services is no longer trading, and can therefore no longer pay out any returns. However, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) has made mis-sold SIPP compensation available for people who meet the funds’ eligibility criteria.

What did Foreman Financial Services do wrong?
The Foreman Financial Services case was rather notorious, receiving coverage in a number of financial blogs. In January 2018, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) canceled their permission to trade after Foreman Financial Services refused to pay an award mandated by the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).
The FOS complaint was made in regards to Foreman Financial Services recommending that one of its clients use their self-invested personal pension to buy a Harlequin property. The Harlequin Property Scheme was a luxury resort in the Caribbean that promised big returns. However, only 300 of the 6,000 planned properties were ever built. The complainant claimed that Foreman Financial Services advisors never warned them about the risk, nor did they determine if the investment was a suitable one.
Foreman Financial Services soon issued a statement on their website. “It is with great sadness that we would like to inform our past and present clients that Foreman Financial Services Ltd (trading as Grainger Co Financial Services) has permanently ceased trading. We would like to thank you for your business and wish you every success in the future.”
Their apology is obviously not enough. If you were mis-sold SIPP pension products, you deserve more and we can help you.
