UK - DA Phillips and Hornbuckle Mitchell have teamed up with Butterfield Private Bank to offer two self-invested personal pension plans.
The two pensioneer trustee firms will provide the administration and trusteeship for both the Premier Trust SIPP and Flexible SIPP while Butterfield Private Bank will act as provider of the plans and their integrated banking arrangements.
The two SIPPs will be available to professional advisers and their clients and are suitable for retirement funds of £100,000 or more.
DA Phillips director David Phillips said: “We all need to maximise the money we get when we are older, and this is where self-administered schemes such as the Premier Trust SIPP work well.
“Clients can work closely with their professional advisers to manage their money whether in equities, bonds or commercial property to meet their own requirements.”

NEST has signed up to the government-backed Star Initiative, taking all of its 8 million members' pension pots with it.
It is perhaps inherently difficult to find an agreed definition of value for money, but some methodologies could act as a stopgap, argues Jonathan Stapleton.
