What happened to Hartley Pensions Limited?

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) has opened an investigation over the claims against Hartley Pensions Limited. The company has also begun to experience permission restrictions from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). 

It started in February 2022 when the FCA froze the assets of Hartley Pensions, meaning that they couldn’t be moved or sold without express permission. The FCA went further in March 2022, preventing the SIPP provider from taking on any new clients or business unless authorised. 

Hartley Pensions responded by asking the FCA to impose a set of requirements on its own company that it would have to meet to continue accepting contributions toward pensions. Effectively, Hartley Pensions asked the FCA to lock it out of its business. As of August 2022, the company can no longer accept incoming pension contributions and transfers. In addition, the provider cannot switch a pension to another SIPP or SSAS provider.

What happens to the pensions that Hartley Pension Limited has on books?

Hartley was one of a few SIPP firms that had been buying up the “books” of other providers. This means that it had been taking over the SIPPs portfolio of failing firms. Such failed firms include Guinness Mahon Trust Corporation, Lifetime SIPP Company, Berkeley Burke and GPC SPP.

Whilst there are heavy restrictions put on the company, people who are already regularly withdrawing money from their Hartley Pension will be able to keep doing so. Also, all pension payments will continue to be made. That being said, it’s a good idea to think about whether you’ve been mis-sold.
