There have been a number of recent developments which have renewed the focus of SIPP providers and how they manage underlying investments.

These include the Financial Conduct Authority’s (the FCA) response to a number of questions posed by the Work and Pensions Select Committee (WPCS) on 8 June 2018.

Further, recent decisions by the Financial Ombudsman Service (the FOS) to uphold complaints against Guinness Mahon Trust Corporation (GM) are significant as they have previously placed a number of similar complaints on hold pending the decision in the Russell Adams v Carey Pensions UK LLP (the Adams case) rumoured to be published next month.
