What is a SIPP?

A Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) is a type of pension that gives you the freedom to choose and manage your own investments. A SIPP account allows you to see how your investments are doing at any time and make changes whenever you like. They provide the same tax-efficient pension benefits as other types of defined contributions pensions, as well as a full range of allowable income drawdown options.

SIPPs are for people who are happy making their own investment decisions. Usually they suit higher value pensions and experienced investors.

The ii SIPP is aimed at clients who have sufficient knowledge and experience of investing to make their own investment decisions and want to actively manage their investments. A SIPP is not suitable for every investor. Other types of pensions may be more appropriate. The value of investments made within a SIPP can fall as well as rise and you may end up with a fund at retirement that’s worth less than you invested. You can normally only access the money from age 55 (age 57 from 2028). Prior to making any decision about the suitability of a SIPP, or transferring any existing pension plan(s) into a SIPP we recommend that you seek the advice of a suitably qualified financial adviser. Please note the tax treatment of these products depends on the individual circumstances of each customer and may be subject to change in future.
