ii SIPP customer stories

More and more people are moving their pensions from old, expensive schemes to our low-cost SIPP.

We talked to four interactive investor customers who have recently transferred their old-style pensions.


My research showed it was good value … and extremely flexible in terms of buying and selling.

Terry Jones moved quickly to transfer an old stakeholder pension with Aviva to an Interactive Investor SIPP in February as he had suspicions that Covid-19 could start impacting markets.

Having everything under one roof makes things much easier, as I no longer have to deal with multiple providers.

Jessica Keplinger, 37, consolidated four old-style pensions she had from jobs dating back to the first job she had in her twenties. 

I had never heard of a SIPP but I’m now completely sold. It’s incredibly straightforward.

Retired Ian Drew has just consolidated two old-style pensions into a SIPP – something he’s been meaning to do since he turned 55, two years ago.

It’s a relief to finally be in control of my own money. Making the switch was very easy – I should have done it ages ago.

Retired Richard Papiransky was fed up of paying excessive charges on his old-style pension scheme with Standard Life - and its poor performance.

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.
