LV= responds to consultation on banning pensions cold-calling

Press release: 23/11/2016

Responding to the news that a consultation on banning pensions cold-calling will be announced in the Autumn Statement, Philip Brown, Head of Policy at LV=, said: We’re extremely pleased the Government is planning to introduce a ban on pensions cold-calling. This is a big step forward in consumer protections that should help safeguard people from falling prey to scammers and potentially losing thousands of pounds of their hard-earned savings. Financial Conduct Authority rules restrict legitimate firms from cold-calling consumers so people should be on their guard if they’re contacted out of the blue about releasing money from their pension pot or accessing their pension early.”
