There are increasing calls for the UK’s financial regulator to ban peer to peer (P2P) non-advised sales as another firm goes bust.
Barclays has agreed a $2 billion settlement over claims it fraudulently sold sub-prime mortgage-backed securities in America in the lead-up to the financial crisis of 2008.

With a two-year-old son and another child on the way, conveyancing lawyer Stephen Thomas just didn’t have the time to make his own PPI claim and came to Gladstone Brookes to help him out.
“I know I could have done it myself, but I just couldn’t find the time and I thought the fees were reasonable for the amount of work done.”
Damian Shaw had seen the Gladstone Brookes advert on TV many time but never did anything about making his own PPI claim until in 2016 a friend suggested he make the call.
He was unsure how much PPI he may have had attached to agreements in the past and was surprised when his enquiry uncovered it was attached to four loans from Halifax. Following an investigation, the lender agreed he had been mis-sold the policies and paid him £5,334 in compensation.
Alan Jones had taken out quite a few loans and credit cards in the past, but he had no idea whether or not he had PPI attached to any of them and so had never made a claim.
“Then my partner made a claim through Gladstone Brookes on some of the agreements she had had in the past and got back over £1,500. I thought to myself ‘if she can get a result like that maybe I should have a go’ so I rang up and spoke to an advisor,” said Alan.
Martin Edwards had been with Lloyds Bank for 40 years, starting his account when he was a boy soldier of 15, and had lots of different loans and other agreements with them, but had no idea whether or not PPI was attached to any of them.
There is probably no bigger milestone in life than the birth of your child – particularly if you have had difficulty in conceiving and want one so much.
As a company we are proud to say we were able to help to make that dream come true for two mums who used the compensation we were able to win for mis-sold PPI to undergo successful fertility treatment.Read More

Pensioner Mr L.B knew he had taken out several loans and credit cards in the past, but he had no idea whether or not PPI was attached to any of them.
“To be honest, I’d never even thought about making any sort of claim and then I saw the Gladstone Brookes advert and thought I would give it a try and then I could be sure.”
