  • What do SIPPs offer?

    A SIPP stands for Self-Invested Personal Pension. They enjoy generous tax benefits, give you access to a wide range of investments when compared to traditional pensions, and any gains made are free from capital gains and income tax.

  • SIPPs may not suit everyone

    Why? Because a SIPP puts you in the driving seat. A SIPP is a pension ‘wrapper’ which allows you to hold investments and decide what to buy and sell. The investment decisions you make are your own and, as with other investments, the value of your funds can fall as well as rise.

  • Is a SIPP right for you?

    • If you are happy to be an active investor
    • If you are comfortable making investment decisions
    • If you want to invest in a wider range of assets, such as trusts or individual shares
  • WHY EQI?

    The tax benefits of a SIPP

    SIPPs share the significant tax benefits common to other private pensions.

    The government automatically pays an extra 20% into your pension (the basic rate of tax). If you pay a higher rate of tax, you may be able to claim back up to 46% via a Self-Assessment tax return.

  • Choice and control

    Typically, investors have little or no choice in how their contributions are invested. A SIPP is different, you are your own fund manager.

    A SIPP gives you access to a wider range of investment options, which means you can diversify your portfolio and seek returns which can boost your retirement pot.
