Potential value of cases
Blue Ocean Financial Services was a firm of Financial Advisors based in Maidstone, Kent. They were founded in 2002, and were regulated by the FSA between 2010 and 2013, before moving to regulation by the FCA from April 2013 until July 2016. They were authorised under FRN 526077.
The firm lost authorisation to act from the FCA on 22nd July 2016, and was then dissolved on 15th November 2016. In July 2017, the FSCS that Blue Ocean Financial Services was in default, meaning that from this point onwards, their clients could apply to the FSCS for compensation. It should be noted that Blue Ocean claimed on their website in 2013 that they could offer “guaranteed income options” for “pensions and investments”, which is often regarded as a textbook mis-selling case.
