Selecting The Best SIPP Account Provider

Broker 1 and Broker 4 appear to offer the best value for the average investor. Broker 1 pips it with the reduced Fun and Share Admin fees. Broker 2 is more pricey but does not impose a fee for Regular Drawdowns.

Broker 3 is aimed at those with large investment pots (£000’000’s). The Fixed-Fee comes to around £240 per year. This can actually be far less depending on the investment value than its rivals who work on a % basis.

Some Brokers also negotiate discounts with Fund Managers for certain Funds that can mean you will pay less on the other material cost when investing in Funds: the Ongoing Charges Figure (a 0.1%-0.15% discount is common). This is a charge that is levied by the Fund Manager and not directly by your Broker.

Looking beyond the numbers, you should also look at other factors in relation to your potential Broker. These include the levels of customer support, level of general support and ease-of-use of the platform.
