    We've now concluded our investigations into the firm’s practices. We're sorry that they took longer than expected.

    Following our investigations, we consider that certain claims are eligible for compensation. We’ve passed the claims we’ve received against BBT to our claims assessment team to review.

    FSCS is aware that there is a court case against the directors. While the court case is ongoing we will continue to work with 3rd parties and carry on with our investigations to establish if there are valid claims against BBT Financial Services.

    FSCS is still looking into the practices of BBT Financial Services. We are reviewing all the information that has been provided to identify exactly what has happened to each customer.

    We were hoping to complete our initial investigations by the end of August 2019. This will change to the end of October 2019, however, as our investigations have taken longer than we initially anticipated.

    Although FSCS is accepting claims against BBT Financial Services, claims haven't yet been passed to our claims processing teams for assessment. This is because we're still carrying out our investigations into the activities of the firm.

    Firstly, we need to establish whether there are ‘protected claims’ against BBT Financial Services. For this to happen we need to know that the firm owes a civil liability to customers that would enable them to sue the firm in court. Importantly, this civil liability must be in connection with a regulated activity carried out by the firm.

    Currently our investigations are focussing on allegations of fraud that have been made against the firm. The alleged fraudulent activity relates to theft and misappropriation of investor funds.

    Right now FSCS is working with the North Yorkshire Police and other organisations in order understand the extent of the alleged fraud. These investigations will help us reach a view on what regulatory breaches may have occurred.

    We hope to have concluded our initial investigations by the end of August 2019, at which time claims will be passed to our claims processing teams for assessment.
