GPC SIPP

GPC SIPP Limited have been trading since 2005 and over that time have built up around 2,700 SIPPs (Self Invested Personal Pension) with total funds under management of approximately £158 million.

GPC also offer a SSAS (Small Self Administered Scheme) as well as a SIPP.

The GPC SIPP is only available through an IFA (Independent Financial Adviser) and has no minimum contribution levels, except for a transfer in, where the minimum that can be accepted is £15,000.

The GPC SIPP is flexible and allows investment into a wide range of assets, including commercial property, shares, corporate bonds, gilts, collective funds, UCIS (Unregulated Collective Investment Schemes) as well as external deposit accounts.

The mandated SIPP bank account for GPC is held with Royal Bank of Scotland and pays a tiered rate of interest, although always currently below Bank Base Rate, depending on the balance in the account.
