I've never heard of him but that's not surprising.

Would a QROPS scheme be as well regulated as your present arrangements?

I've already done some Googling but most of what is written is by organisations that want to sell you their product rather than tell you about any disadvantages to it.

Hi - It is really important to get a good adviser. I am a director of QROPS administrator, but we don't deal direct with clients, only through professional introducers. You need to find someone you can trust and you also need to understand how they intend to invest your money. It's your pension - critically important!

Could you offer more detailed information, please?

Be very careful who you deal with. I spent 7 month's working for a firm of 'Financial Advisors' in Bangkok and all they were interested in was getting you signed up so they could get their commission. I felt it was obscene the way these people paly around with people's investments and futures.

Having worked in the industry the best advice I can give you is to find someone who has used the same financial advisor for many years and that they trust. If they come recommended by someone you know you have some form of safety net. If a company or advisor approaches you then leave them well alone.

Financial Services Regulator Rules And Regulations.

1. Funds must be kept safe at all times.
2. Access to these funds can only be done by me, the regulator.
3. I cannot be prosecuted for any loss of funds for whatever reason.
4. Apart from me having access, my wife, my maid and her husband will on occasions be made very wealthy on a short term basis.
5. I will not be liable to any taxes on profits I have made protecting your funds.

Oh sorry, wrong thread. That deals with another matter all together.
