    Nigel, You need to hold the appointed Trustees , Dalriada responsible very simply because you were not a member, your money was simply being held on trust and you had the right to have it returned !
    By the way having reviewed the tax legislation … there is no ” Intention Tax” therefore you will not have tax to pay, should this change we will repost. Your money is being held by Dalriada illegally, contact the tPR as you had a right for it to be returned from whence it came ! Look up perhaps Spence and Partners and and their sanctioning by the Institute of Actuaries, Brian Spence and Sean Browse involved in both businesses… a distinction therefore without difference ! If I was you I would report Dalriada to ” Action on Fraud” they hold your money illegally! Fact!!! Dalriada and their legal team have had over £3m … come on …that is the only scam!!!!

    No surprises to read this about the slippery Mr Ward. Surprised he has not been sued for negligence following his antics when he was FSA regulated PFS in the UK, tucking up millions of client SIPP money into property linked investments which also went bad. Then he managed to bankrupt his firm, so there was no financial comeback for the individuals who he disadvantaged. The compensation scheme footed the bill. He was putting some very large pension contributions into his own pension during these years, via his own created SIPP contract with the help of his mate John Pugh, so no wonder the company had no money to pay compensation.
