Our SIPP is a personal pension that gives you choice and flexibility. It's easy to get started.

Please remember, SIPPs are aimed at people happy to make their own investment decisions. Investment value can go up or down and you could get back less than you invest. You can normally only access the money from age 55 (57 from 2028). We recommend seeking advice from a suitably qualified financial advisor before making any decisions. Pension and tax rules depend on your circumstances and may change in future.

SIPP cashback offer: Transfer at least £10,000 across one or more pensions by 30 June to claim up to £2,000 cashback. Terms apply.

What is a SIPP?

A Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) gives you the freedom to choose your investments.

Some people use a SIPP to combine old pensions into one. This can make it easier to keep track of your retirement savings.

By adding a SIPP to the investment accounts you already hold with us , you can keep track of everything in one place. Plus, you can transfer your old pensions to make things even easier.
