SIPP charges

Learn exactly how much you will be paying for the ii SIPP. If you are not satisfied, it is free to leave.

Our fees stay the same while you're building your pension pot, no matter how much you invest. Once you start to take retirement benefits, there is an additional £10 monthly pension drawdown fee.

Our service plan charges start from £9.99 per month. We believe that charging a fixed fee is fairer than percentage-based fees. You will always know what you are paying, and your charges will stay the same as your investment grows. This can lead to significant savings over a long-term investment. 

With our fair flat fees you can watch your portfolio grow while your costs stay the same.

SIPP Management Charges

Our SIPP administration fee is £10 per month, including VAT (special offer: pay no SIPP fee until April 2021) . There is no charge for opening a SIPP, and we do not charge any exit fees. The full breakdown of SIPP management fees is as follows:

open a SIPP   transfer your pension

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.
