ii SIPP Selected Growth Option

A low-cost investment chosen to match common goals when investing for retirement.

Invest in yourself, investing in your pension

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. 

Not sure what investment to choose for your SIPP?

Introducing the ii SIPP Selected Growth Option

The ii SIPP Selected Growth Option is an optional low-cost investment that our team of experts has carefully selected to match common goals when investing for retirement. The Fund aims to balance a moderate growth level with a corresponding risk level to achieve long-term growth over 5 years or more and is considered a good middle ground investment.

The ii SIPP Selected Growth Option is Vanguard LifeStrategy® 60% Equity Fund.

Investment Allocation

The fund is exposed to a diversified portfolio comprised of approximately: 60% shares and 40% bonds and other similar fixed income investments. The fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing more than 90% of its assets in passive funds that track an index.


Details of the past performance of this fund can be found on our factsheet. The factsheet includes details on how the fund is benchmarked, and charts showing the historical price and total return of the fund over time periods up to the last 5 years. Past performance is not an indicator of what may happen in future.

Things to consider - It important to understand that the ii SIPP Selected Growth Fund is not tailored to your specific needs and that it will not automatically invest in lower risk options as you approach your planned retirement age. Depending on your circumstances, including how long you plan to invest, you may be interested in taking more risk to potentially achieve higher returns or prefer a more cautious approach to help preserve your pension value and reduce the impact of a short-term fall in the value of stock markets. If you're unsure, we recommend seeking advice from a suitably qualified financial advisor before making any decisions.

Our six Quick-start Funds, including our ii SIPP Selected Growth option, have been selected by investment experts as a simple starting point for investing. They are split into three broad risk categories: lower, moderate, and higher risk.

However, you should note that the selection of our Quick-start Funds is not investment advice or a ‘personal recommendation’. This means neither we, nor Morningstar, have assessed your investment knowledge, your financial situation (including your ability to bear losses), your investment objectives, your risk tolerance, or your sustainability preferences. 

You should ensure that any investment decisions you make are suitable for your personal circumstances, and if you are unsure about the suitability of a particular investment or think you need a personal recommendation, you should speak to a suitably qualified financial adviser. Neither ii nor Morningstar are responsible for any trading decisions, damages or other losses related to the Quick-start Funds.

The past performance of an investment is not a reliable indicator of future results, and ii does not guarantee or predict the future performance of the Quick-start Funds investment list as a whole or the constituent investments. 


ii adheres to a strict code of conduct. Members of ii staff may have holdings in one or more Quick-start Funds, which could create a conflict of interest. Any member of staff involved in the development of research about any financial instrument in which they have an interest are required to disclose such interest to ii. We will at all times consider whether such interest impairs the objectivity of the recommendation. 

In addition, staff involved in the production of the Quick-start Funds are subject to a personal account dealing restriction. This prevents them from placing a transaction in the specified instrument(s) for five working days before and after an investment is included or amended and made public within the Quick-start Funds. This is to avoid personal interests conflicting with the interests of investors in the Quick-start Funds.
