Guinness Mahon Trust Corporation Limited (GMTC) Claims Advice

Have you been involved at any point with Guinness Mahon Trust Corporation Limited and as a result lost money? If so, Pension Justice is dedicated to helping victims claim compensation for any losses as a result of opening a SIPP by Guinness Mahon.

Guinness Mahon Case Study

The company was established in 1927 and provided its services for investors, members, advisers and introducers. Many GMTC customers were recommended to transfer their pension funds to a SIPP and thereafter invest in non standard, illiquid and high risk products.

SIPPs can be a smart choice for some people, but Guinness Mahon Trust Corporation included some very high-risk investments in their products.

The company was put into administration on 17 February 2020, which means that GMTC cannot pay you any returns on your investment. However, you may be eligible for mis-sold SIPP compensation made available by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

It’s Your Right To Claim With Help From Pension Justice.

Guinness Mahon  Trust Corporation Timeline:

17 February 2020 – GMTC sought professional advice about its liabilities arising from existing and potential claims, and the directors were advised that GMTC was insolvent and should be placed under administration. The appointed joint administrators subsequently sold the SIPP business to Hartley Pensions Limited, another firm authorised and regulated by the FCA. 

Approximately 4,000 SIPPs and other assets were included in Guinness Mahon’s sale, but the legal entity Guinness Mahon Trust Corporation Limited remains in administration.

9 November 2020 – The investigation by the FSCS concluded that they might be able to compensate customers and started accepting claims in relation to its due diligence.

13 April 2021 – The Financial Services Compensation Scheme has paid out £22.5m on 718 claims against SIPP provider Guinness Mahon. To date, 180 claims have been denied. [1]

    The Financial Conduct Authority has stated that the majority of the customers Guinness Mahon Trust Corporation Limited dealt with were retail investors. Such investors have a limited financial services knowledge, so it was important for them to be given clear, straightforward information about their investments. However, Guinness Mahon documents did not meet this standard.
