“Very knowledgeable staff”

Written on: 18/07/2017 by PaulaMerritt (1 review written)

The people I dealt with from the initial contact to the pensions consultant demonstrated a very professional attitude and willingness to help me with my problem. I was given full details of all the options open to me in terms I was able to understand and all the information was followed up in writing so that I had time to consider all my options. … Read Full Review

“Finally, someone that could help.”

Written on: 13/07/2017 by RonandLizzy (1 review written)

I was trying to find out how to get my old UK pensions out of Blighty for the last few years (after hitting the big six-oh!) I now live in the USA and no-one here knew anything about UK pensions, and I had no idea whom to speak with in the UK. I came across Forth Capital by chance, and found myself speaking with a team of fellow Brits here in the US, and they helped me put four old UK pensions into one US pension - Such a relief - I thought I'd never see that money again, and I must say, it… Read Full Review

“Useful timely information and great client service”

I applied online for a brochure about UK pension transfers which was useful and interesting. I then met with a professional financial adviser who explained very clearly the best options for me concerning transferring my pension. Forth Capital are professional and know what they are talking about… Read Full Review

“expensive, unresponsive & incompetent”

Written on: 01/11/2016 by RomanWF (1 review written)

I asked Forth Capital to recommend an investment scheme where I invest a certain amount of money on a monthly basis. Trusting their recommendation way too much I signed up with a Pension Fund that had only a very limited number of mutual funds to invest in, charged exorbitant fees, and locked me into this scheme for 15 years (i.e. moving funds comes with a 30% penalty!). When the portfolio was underperforming compared to other funds with similar risk I asked them to review my portfolio. Forth… Read Full Review

“High fees, poor service, no transparency”

Written on: 18/10/2016 by Adkins500 (1 review written)

Promised returns, transparency and service before I signed up. Since have just received extortionate fees, very poor service and no response to issues, including refusal to provide an annual statement for the tax man (I think they believe they are above the tax man). In addition have found that there are "hidden fees" and retro charges in their products. More fool me, never again… Read Full Review

“Seminar”

Written on: 22/02/2016 by MarcosGomez410 (1 review written)

Went to a seminar in Geneva, the lady who gave the presentation was amazing, new tax rules inside out. The other guy a partner in Geneva answered any question with I will have to speak to you later about that, he had no idea. So, went all the way to Geneva from France to attend, I only to find out the Tax office is closing in February. total waste of time … Read Full Review

“At best, totally lacking in integrity”

Written on: 11/01/2016 by sillypensioner (1 review written)

Forth Capital promised so much and have totally failed to deliver. Over the past 34 months, they have charged an average of £497 PER MONTH in administration fees, to make an electronic payment of some £500 PER MONTH in a QROPS pension from an account in which they hold my money. THEY DO NOTHING ELSE FOR THIS FEE. Is this the reasonable and responsible way to charge a Client? Your views would be appreciated… Read Full Review

“Poor handling of QROPS redemption request”

Written on: 20/09/2015 by viking59 (1 review written)

I am living outside the UK and transferred 1 pension fund that I had set up years ago while living in the UK into a QROPS with Forth Capital. Following the changes to UK legislation last year (the custodian of the QROPS adapted the new rules as of 1 June 2015) I wanted to take advantage of the rule change to redeem my fund full and use the funds to purchase a "place in the sun". I submitted the redemption request in June 2015 and expected that the fund investment would be closed out and turned… Read Full Review

“Efficient, friendly and clear”

Written on: 30/11/2013

Living in the middle east has its benefits, low tax , great weather but we have real difficulty in finding quality financial advice- forth capital - unravelled the mess that they inherited from my local adviser - I now have my pension growing again, receive proper service and feel comfortable that my financial adviser not only knows what he is doing but that he also cares about my finances- I have now been dealing with them for 3 years and felt I had to share my experience so that my peers… Read Full Review

“Efficient and easy to understand”

Written on: 16/09/2013 by MSmith1954 (1 review written)

I was unsure of what would happen with my pension, as I live abroad and am approaching retirement age. Forth Capital made it all very easy to understand, and helped me through the process. My adviser was excellent, explaining everything and answering all my questions. I've now sorted my pension out and I'm now looking at an investment proposal, to help maximise my funds… Read Full Review

“All too much trouble!”

Written on: 27/08/2013

Letters sent incorrectly addressed, telephone calls not answered or not returned - very poor English language skills from apparently Russian speaking assistants. No real effort to follow up Insurance companies in the UK holding pension policies from whom transfer values were required. The whole experience with Forth Capital was very poor and led to an abrupt termination! Having switched to a company based in the Netherlands, the now completed process in transferring UK pensions into an Isle of… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/08/2013

Having worked in the UK for several years and moving across to Switzerland. I was unsure of what to do with my uk investments. If I am honest I had not heard QROPS before and I was unsure as to whether it was something for me. After speaking with them I discovered the benefits of the system.Forth Capitals service was fantastic and I would Highly recommend them to anyone moving abroad. They made the process as simple a possible and put me at ease every step of the way, offering advice and no… Read Full Review

“QROPS Made Easy.”

Written on: 18/12/2012

I would wholeheartedly recommend Forth Capital if you are looking for QROPS advise or any other financial investment offshore. Its difficult to find a reliable IFA offshore especially when one is new to living outside of the UK. Especially for ourselves QROPS transfer was explained in very easy understandable terms without any complicated financial jargon by Dean and Laura. The transfer to QROPS itself was without any hassle or stumbling blocks and the whole procedure was smoothly executed… Read Full Review

“QROPS without the hassle!”

Written on: 08/12/2012 by ArnoldBrown (1 review written)

I must congratulate Forth Capital on their ability to explain QROPS and complete all the paperwork with the minimum of jargon and hassle. Having spoken to other advisers I was happy to find a firm that had my interests at heart! It was fantastic to find a firm that reviewed all aspects of my situation including my risk profile… Read Full Review
