    Stephen Ward is still operating in the pensions and investment industry for the same firm with offices in Spain, the UK and the UAE.

    Angie, so quick to attack someone who makes a spelling mistake (your Smere vs Smear post) and then you go and do it too. Tsk tsk!

    “Protect your pension – swat up on pensions rules and regulations – your pension is your life’s saving – make sure you protect it!”

    To point out the difference for you between SWAT and SWOT.

    SWAT is an acronym for Special Weapons and Tactics, as in special police force.

    SWOT is to “study or work hard”.

    Those in glass houses and all that.

    I’m sitting here wondering if you are any better than those you attack. You may think you’re doing something good, but you are actually (very entertaining) laughing stock for all in the industry. You also write so poorly that I’m sure no person of sound mind would actually take you seriously.

    Those who do take your nonsense more seriously (they really shouldn’t) have actually successfully managed to get your site blocked in certain countries because of your ill-informed and often unfounded claims and outright defamation.

    Can’t wait to read your next wild swing at someone… (that and, of course, your normal “need to defend myself” comment that is about to follow naturally).

    @phil Do you work for Holborn then?

    Oh, btw, the profession does take the issue of defrauding victims seriously as it is the profession that ends up having to pay for all of this. You and your ”industry” mates can carry on laughing at the plight of those that have lost everything.

    @ward no I don’t. But do work in the pension transfer space for a long time.

    I agree that defrauding people is horrible, those that do should bloody go to jail.

    Merely making a point that the owner of this site is misguided in who she attacks. Holborn and Guardian and Carrick (and deVere who obviously pays or threatens her legally) are all good companies in my opinion. Sure, they may have had some investments go down but to point finger and call these companies “crooks” and “frauds” (without evidence I’ll add) is just as damaging to the industry.

    Angie Brooks make it out that all who purvey the offshore space is out to defraud. And I believe she does more harm than good.

    “The pension transfer space”? Funny language you lot use, the ”space” is a good term to use as that represents where the money used to be.

    “Good” companies do not get crippling fines for failing to meet anti-money laundering rules.

    Did you watch that video? This is not just a case of investments going down, which is an achievement in itself during one of the longest market bull runs in living memory, it is about a lot more than that. Wouldn’t the evidence be the investor who was defrauded of his or her pension? Is not the stuffing of a whole pension fund into derivative manufactured autocall notes deemed to be poor practice in your Skylab?

    Aren’t deVere in “space” too 😉 If they are funding this, wouldn’t they be damaging the “space” for themselves as well? There is a lot of space junk out there.

    There are other companies on this site that are not in orbit, but seem to be based in GB. So, it is not all about companies outside of GB.

    I hope this site does damage the financial sales industry, maybe the financial professionals reading this would welcome that and the death of this horrendous commission culture that more advanced regulators have kicked into the stratosphere.
