Rowanmoor SIPP

Rowanmoor is a trading name of the Embark Group, providing Self-Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs), Small Self-Administered Schemes (SSASs) and Family Pension Trusts (Family SIPPs).

Rowanmoor Personal Pensions Limited administers around 4,500 SIPPs which can be opened through an IFA.

The Rowanmoor SIPP has two investment options that allow investment into a wide range of assets, including commercial property, listed and unlisted shares, discretionary fund managers, investment trusts, external deposit accounts and many other assets.

There is no minimum contribution level in order to open a Rowanmoor SIPP, however £2,000 in cash or other easily realisable assets must be retained in the SIPP for fees and liabilities that may arise.

The mandated SIPP bank account is held with Metro Bank and currently pays an interest rate of 0.20% per annum.
