What is a professional negligence claim against a financial adviser?

Compensation claims can be taken out against financial advisers if you believe that they have violated their duty of care to you by providing you with negligent advice which does not stand up to the professional standard expected.

Ways in which claims can be sought against negligent financial advisers include seeking compensation for:

  • Negligent advice with respect to Accelerated Payment Notices.
  • Negligent advice with respect to investments in unsuitable pension schemes
  • Negligent advice with respect to unsuitable high-risk investment products and unregulated investment schemes
  • Negligent advice with respect to tax avoidance schemes
  • Negligent advice with respect to investment in products that are not suitable for a client’s specific needs
  • Failure to consider the client’s financial circumstances prior to making investments

Why choose us?

We will work to achieve significant recompense for any losses caused by a financial adviser’s negligent advice.

We aim to resolve disputes quickly and cost-effectively to allow our clients to focus on more productive matters, seeking to avoid expensive court proceedings and achieve necessary recompense at the earliest stage.

We recognise that a large proportion of our clients are busy with heavy work commitments and are therefore agreeable to arranging consultations out of normal business hours.

Will my claim be successful?

In order to bring a successful negligence claim against a financial adviser, a claimant i.e. the person bringing the claim, must demonstrate to the court that the professional in question owed them a duty of care which is normally established by them being a client in the first place, secondly that professional breached his duty of care, thirdly that the professional by either doing something or failing to do something, (the latter often referred to as an omission), caused the claimant a loss. The loss is the fourth element that the claimant must prove.
