A pensions business is immediately halting advice on DB pensions transfers, following discussions with the regulator.
Inspectors from the The Pensions Regulator have been sent to visit businesses in the Greater Manchester area as part of investigations into compliance.
An executive director at The Pensions Regulator has called for pension transfers to SSAS to be banned.
The FCA’s chief executive has warned some pension providers they must take action quickly after the regulator found customers were still at risk of high costs and charges.
An adviser is set to be banned and fined over 'unsuitable' advice related to switching pension funds via Sipps into unregulated investments.

A Sipp expert has questioned whether the FCA has the resources to police the new capital adequacy rules taking effect in September and what punishments firms failing to meet the requirements will face.
An advisory firm chief executive has been handed an official warning notice by the FCA over Sipp related advice.
The FCA has published what it called ‘minor changes’ to its new capital adequacy rules this afternoon – with one expert saying the original proposals had been ‘watered down’.
