InvestAcc Minerva SIPP

InvestAcc offer both Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs) as well as Small Self Administered Schemes (SSAS).

InvestAcc offer  SIPPs –  Minerva SIPP and SIPPLite  to cater for all investor’s needs.

In total InvestAcc administer over 2,900 SIPPs.

The Minerva SIPP is the most flexible SIPP of InvestAcc’s range, allowing investment into a wide range of assets including commercial property, shares, gilts, corporate bonds, discretionary fund managers, external SIPP deposit accounts.

Unusually the InvestAcc Minerva SIPP, which is accessible directly to InvestAcc or via an IFA, has no initial charge and the annual charge is highly competitive. Furthermore there is no initial charge to purchase a property, again an unusual feature.

In common with the Lite SIPP the mandated account is held with Metro Bank which pays interest at 0.55%.

There is no minimum contribution level, for transfers, lump sums or regular payments into the InvestAcc Minerva SIPP.
