3rd August 2012
Bentley-Leek Financial Management Limited (Bentley-Leek) was placed into creditor’s voluntary liquidation in November 2011.
Although FSCS is satisfied Bentley-Leek is unable, or likely to be unable, to pay claims, we must also be satisfied there is at least one eligible claim against the firm before we can declare it in default.
FSCS is considering whether there may be valid claims against Bentley-Leek for advice it gave in relation to various property-backed ventures, and whether we may be able to pay compensation in relation to those claims. Although we are not able to say at this time how long our investigations will take, we will provide further updates on significant developments as they occur.
If we are able to accept claims, we will then provide customers of Bentley-Leek with information about how to make a claim for compensation.
