Consequential Loss Claims from Swap Mis-selling

Only £5 m of additional consequential losses have paid out  by banks under FCA's IRHP review.

The FCA has recently posted some interesting information about consequential loss claims under the FCA approved review.

The 8% interest rate set by the FCA was designed, in part to provide redress for lost opportunities. Any claim for additional consequential loss has therefore to exceed that 8% per annum to be worth pursuing.

So far 2,965 claims have been received by banks and 1,535 of those have been assessed; with only 11 having resulted in a payout of more than £100,000.

Claims are complicated to put together and need not just legal advice, but real estate and financial know-how to restate accounts, assess losses and formulate strategy.

At Recept we have the necessary skills, and experience to help clients judge the chances of success.
