Independent Benefit Consultancy Ltd (IBC) is now in liquidation. Have you been a victim of their pension transfer advice?
IBC was based in Glasgow and have transferred thousands of final salary pensions. You may have been referred to them by your own financial advisor.
Transferring out of a defined benefit pension can cause you to lose valuable benefits and even lose money in your pension. Pension holders are often unaware that they have been victims and have had substantial losses.
Large numbers of pensions had been moved from Local Government Pension Schemes (LGPS) like the Lothian Pension Fund, the Falkirk Council Pension Fund, the Dumfries and Galloway Pension Fund & the Strathclyde Pension Fund. Diageo and Pilkington Glass are two of the the many other defined benefit final salary schemes known to have a large amount of pension transfers.
