Managed SIPP

James Brearley Managed SIPP

For most of our younger clients, their personal pension is likely to represent their main savings nest-egg and will be an important contributor to funding their retirement.

Although James Brearley are not qualified to provide clients with pension advice, we are experienced and knowledgeable in the management of client pension portfolios, typically those within a Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP).

When SIPPs were first introduced in the early 1990s it was widely accepted that they were only for those with above average value pension pots, given their hefty administration costs. However, over the last 20 years, they have become far more affordable and are now a widely held pension wrapper for the masses.

James Brearley has partnered with Platform One SIPP Administrators, to evolve the James Brearley Managed SIPP. This vehicle provides investors with the opportunity to appoint James Brearley to manage their pension portfolio, from £50,000 in value. The James Brearley Managed SIPP has no annual SIPP administration charge, which typically represents a £200 plus yearly saving. This is effectively covered in our annual investment management fee of 1.15% (plus VAT) of the portfolio value.
