GPC Sipp Director was paid £1m dividend a few months ahead of firms collapse
GPC Sipp (formerly known as Guardian Pension Consultants) was declared insolvent and closed this month following 141 court claims against them.
A further 300 claims are with the Financial Ombudsman Service (Fos), which are being transferred over to the FSCS. This means that investors that have their claim with the fos could have got up to £350,000 as this is the limit of how much they can order a firm to pay.
Now the firm have not got the funds to pay out all the claims, the limit for FSCS claims is only £85,000 meaning investors may not get all of they money they lost.
Lawyers of customers are now calling for an investigation into Kathryn Taylor (Director of GPC Sipp) and the receipt of a £1m dividend last year from a firm that had to close because they could not pay their claims.
Investors of the firm are petitioning to get a share of GPC Sipps remaining assets.
