Self-Invested Pensions

We deliver a pension scheme
built around you

Many individuals find that self-invested pensions offer them greater flexibility, in terms of contributions, investment strategies and how eventual benefits are taken, than conventional ‘insured’ pension schemes.

There are two forms of self-invested (or member directed) pension schemes; Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs) which are also available in group versions, and Small Self-Administered Schemes (SSASs).

There are some practical differences, but these are relatively technical and we will be able to advise you on which is more suitable to meet your needs.

Overall, self-invested pensions allow members to invest in a wide range of assets, including:

  • Shares;
  • Share-based collective investments;
  • Bonds;
  • Cash; and
  • Commercial property.

Many other assets are permitted including loans to third parties. In addition, self-invested pensions can borrow up to half their value in order to finance acquisitions of permitted assets.

Wentworth Employee Benefits can advise on set up and also administer suitable self-invested pension schemes, including explaining the relative merits of alternative contribution and investment strategies.
