Financial Services Compensation Scheme (“FSCS”)
Harlequin investors who invested via a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) following advice from an Independent Financial Advisor firm which is no longer trading, may be entitled to compensation from the FSCS. Further details can be found on FSCS’s website.
On 17 February 2017, the SFO charged David Ames, chairman of the Harlequin Group of companies, with three counts of Fraud by Abuse of Position, contrary to section 1 of the Fraud Act 2006. The charges were brought in relation to activity which occurred between January 2010 and June 2015.
The SFO attended a case management hearing at Southwark Crown Court on 2 November 2020, at which HHJ Christopher Hehir set a new trial date of 6 September 2021.
