Update for clients of Hume Capital Securities Plc

23rd March 2015

Hume Capital Services Plc has been placed into the special administration regime. Julien Irving, Mark Colman and Andrew Duncan of Leonard Curtis Recovery Ltd have been appointed as joint special administrators of the firm.

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) is aware of the situation and is working with the special administrators to understand what the failure of the firm might mean for consumers. FSCS cannot confirm at this stage whether claims for compensation might exist. Once the special administrators conclude their investigations, we will provide more information.

Further information is available on the Leonard Curtis Recovery Ltd website. Any enquiries about the firm should be referred to the special administrators at hcs@leonardcurtis.co.uk
