    Are the U.K. regulatory authority the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) aware of this case? Holborn Assets are currently under investigation by the FCA according to the following Financial Times article:

    Dear Angie,
    Having read your articles on Holborn assets I wanted to let you know of my situation having lost in the region of $200,000, a third of my savings, due to to poor advice by one of their advisors and after complaining to the management, received a total rebuff from their so called independent assessor.
    I also complained to the FCA in UK however, they stated that as Holborn was based in Dubai and as my advice had been received in Dubai during my residency their, the FCA had no durisdiction.
    If you feel you could assist in my problem I could send you copies of the relevant correspondance for your perusal.
    I now live in France if you should wish to contact me.
    Regards,
    Peter Smith

    I have a similar complaint about Holborn Assets. I have email exchanges between myself and Bob Parker that I would happily share. Essentialy following my decision to cash in my UK pension thriugh QROOS, the funds I ( on their advice) invested in we’re significantly more risky that what I signed up to. Likewise for my wife. Not only did the funds not perform, the advisor actually gave me cash from part of his commission. I appreciate I should have smelled a rat then, but I was naive !! Furthermore, the trust that manages my fund was Gower Pensions, the same as Ms Broadfoot !!
    I tried to lodge complaint through the authorities but as they are Dubai based, I couldn’t get anyone to listen. I also talked to DIFC, UK FSA and Jersey commission – all without luck.
    I would really like to get even with Holborn Assets as what they did was unforgivable and. From what I see I was one if the lucky ones! They no longer manage my pensions !!
