Martin Berkeley and the Vedanta team have done an excellent job in advising this not-for-profit organisation and leading on our claim for miss-selling of £3m of interest rate swap products in connection with a mortgage taken out in 2010. We had strong resistance from the bank and two rejections of the claim. Martin requested extensive information, transcripts etc from the bank which facilitated thorough preparation for a detailed and intense review meeting with the bank. The claim has now finally been accepted resulting in a substantial cash redress settlement and significantly reduced interest costs for the next six years.

In the world of swaps, Abhishek has profound wisdom. This has come from immersion in the realities of the recent interest rate hedge mis-selling fiasco. Abhishek understands the perspectives of the various parties involved; the banks, regulators, lawyers and the SME's who bought swaps. His advice is consistently insightful, relevant and effective.
Kam SangheraPrime Site“Vedanta Hedging worked tirelessly to achieve a very successful outcome for my Company. Martin Berkeley’s expertise was invaluable and he produced a clear and thorough report on a highly technical matter. He explained everything in a straightforward manner and was very supportive throughout the whole process, from start to finish. Without his ongoing advice and support, including attending key meetings with the bank, I doubt I would have got a successful result. I am extremely grateful to Martin and his team at Vedanta for navigating me through a very difficult time with patience and dedication”.

"Abhishek I would like to express our own and our clients’ gratitude to you for your assistance in this matter – the clients are delighted with the ultimate result which we are convinced would not have been presented to us in the absence of your excellent report and advices."

“We are very thankful to Mayad and Abhishek for all their assistance and support throughout our £230m refinancing. They have both been an absolute pleasure to deal with and it has been very comforting for us all to know throughout that we have been in the hands of two extremely capable individuals. Their understanding of our requirements as property investors and subsequent report on hedging strategy gave us the comfort we needed to make an informed decision on our derivatives.”
Paavan Popat (Managing Director)TLC Group
Vedanta Hedging worked closely with us and our Finance Director to assess the hedging options provided by our Bank for our hotels. We hadn't realised the amount of profit the Bank was making on the hedging. For the first time, we were able to hedge our debt in a cost-effective manner, which has given us great peace of mind. We will always be using their advice for all hedging related matters.

Abhishek Sachdev is a hugely enthusiastic colleague with a unique ability to make highly complex products clear to clients and colleagues. He has extraordinary knowledge and insight into this area which is invaluable when assessing strategies for clients. Although not a lawyer by profession his insight into the relevant law is impressive and helpful when his expertise is needed in litigation. He is also very approachable and helpful to all who come into contact with him.

I have referred several of my clients who have borrowings with Banks to Vedanta Hedging. The feedback has always been exceptional, with my clients wishing they had spoken to Vedanta earlier to help them negotiate their hedging costs.

Abhishek is like the "Masked Magician" revealing the tricks and behind the scenes practices of the banks. Abhishek is able to offer a real insight into how banks are pricing, structuring and selling deals - all is not always as it seems! The cost of the service was a fraction of the £28,000 savings we made within 24 hours of receiving the advice.
