European Pensions Management Bespoke SIPP

European Pensions Management has been trading since 1998 and offer both Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs) and Small Self Administered Schemes (SSAS).

European Pensions Management currently administers around 4,000 SIPPs with total funds under management in the region of 4,000.

The European Pensions Management SIPP is available both directly to investors and via IFAs with no minimum regular, lump sum or transfer contribution needed to open a SIPP.

Investors can access a wide range of assets within the European Pensions Management SIPP, from external deposit accounts to shares, gilts and corporate bonds to commercial property. The level of charges reflects the diversity of investments required.

The mandated SIPP bank account is held with Bank of Scotland and currently pays below the average level of interest from such an account, however the EPM SIPP does allow access to external deposit accounts.
