Restrictions on activities

The Special Administrators consider that the quickest and most cost-effective way for Client Assets to be returned to clients is by way of a transfer to a single broker regulated by the FCA. Clients will not have access to their Client Assets until a transfer to a new broker has completed. The Special Administrators aim to conduct a transfer of Client Assets as quickly as possible and are working with all parties to avoid any protracted disruption to clients. All Blankstone staff have been retained by the Special Administrators to assist with a transfer.

Scams

All clients should remain to the possibility of fraud and scams. Where financial firms enter an insolvency process such as Special Administration, fraudsters may sometimes approach investors and clients claiming to be able to recover their investment in return for an advance fee. Sometimes the fraudsters claim to be from the Company or the Special Administrators’ office. You should be wary of any unexpected call, email or other contact which asks for money in this manner. FCA guidelines are available at:
