UK - Pointon York Sipp Solutions has published a guide to self-invested personal pensions for IFAs and their clients.
The 62-page book – SIPP Solutions for a Successful Retirement – provides a guide to setting up a SIPP, information on administration, drawdown procedures, the asset classes eligible for investment and advice to existing users on how to diversify their portfolio.
Managing director Christine Hallett said: “SIPPs have mass market potential, although to date their appeal has been limited to higher earners.
“We believe there is an equally strong case for someone with a £10,000 pension pot to transfer into a SIPP as there is someone with £100,000.
“At the moment the UK’s pension savers feel let down. Every turn they take seems to lead to risk and uncertainty when a pension should be about security and peace of mind.
“Our message to people who have lost trust in institutions is that there is an alternative. They can take control of their pension with a SIPP.”
