GPC is a self-invested personal pension (SIPP) operator, based in Blackburn.
Between 2009 and 2012, GPC accepted high-risk non-standard investments (NSI) into its SIPPs. A high proportion of the NSIs it accepted were into the failed Harlequin property investment schemes. GPC has been subject to a court claim from 141 clients seeking compensation from the firm because of failings around the due diligence carried out by GPC before accepting these NSIs into the SIPPs.
There are also a significant number of SIPP due diligence complaints against the firm relating to NSIs, which are currently being considered by the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS).
