People are taking more of an interest in the investment of their pension monies and we have pension vehicles that cater to that demand, by offering a personal service on top of professional pension administration.

Our Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPP) and Small Self-Administered Schemes (SSAS) are used by people wanting to invest their pension money in commercial property or with discretionary fund managers.

SIPP

Our SIPP allows individual investors to access a huge range of investments including direct investment into commercial property and accounts with many Discretionary Fund Managers. As of 1 January 2018 our SIPP portfolio includes over 15,000 SIPPs, £3.4bn in assets under administration (AUA) and over 1,200 commercial properties.

SSAS

Our SSAS allows business owners to lend back half of their pension savings to their business on top of the investment options available to our SIPP investors. As of 1 January 2018 we hold over 2,170 SSASs, £4.1bn in assets under administration (AUA), around 2,750 commercial properties and agree approximately 80 new loan-backs per annum.

FURBS

We help people with legacy Funded Unapproved Retirement Benefit Schemes (FURBS). This work includes getting paperwork in order, advising on investment options and closing down schemes where members want to draw benefits.
