What are Sipps?

Sipps stands for "self-invested personal pensions". These are a 'do-it-yourself' form of pension that allows an individual to make his or her own investments into a personal pension pot.

But you don't have to be an investment genius to have a Sipp. They're great for:

  • pulling a whole load of personal pensions together,
  • having a wider variety of investments than in a normal personal pension including shares and commercial property
  • giving you day to day control over the "big picture" such as moves from shares to cash or vice versa
  • letting you into "income drawdown" - a way of having your tax free cake while keeping your pension invested. Income drawdown needs specialist help.
