Guide to Sipp Charges



    Charges can be made based upon a percentage of assets held within the Sipp, set fees for the various services provided as either flat, time-costed or percentage-based rates, or a combination of both.

    This guide explores the various costs Sipp investors can face, how charges differ between platforms and pension providers, what fee structure suits what type of investor, plus what part charges should play when an adviser recommends a self-invested personal pension provider.
