Make investments across a number of different asset classes to suit current and future investment strategies

Hartley Pensions Prosperity SIPP

Hartley Pensions currently offer three different SIPPs namely the Abacus SIPP, Prosperity SIPP and Empire SIPP.

In total Hartley Pensions run over 11,000 SIPPs.

The Hartley Pensions Prosperity SIPP can be accessed via an IFA or direct and is aimed at people who want to make investments that a Personal Pension will not allow across a number of different asset classes, in addition to the mandated SIPP bank account. Whilst the Hartley Pensions Prosperity SIPP allows access to a wide range of assets it does not permit investment directly into commercial property, investors looking to make such an investment can do so by upgrading to the Empire SIPP.

The mandated SIPP bank account for the Hartley Pensions Prosperity SIPP is held with the Royal Bank of Scotland.
