The MW SIPP (Self Invested Personal Pension) was started in 2004 and currently has over £140 million under management in the UK plus £37 million in the Isle of Man.

The MW SIPP is available both via IFAs (Independent Financial Advisers) and direct.

The MW SIPP allows investors to access a wide range of investments, including commercial property, deposit accounts, directly held securities, discretionary fund managed and deposit accounts.

There is no minimum regular, lump sum or transfer payment needed to start the MW SIPP.

The mandated SIPP bank account is  held with Cambridge & Counties Bank, paying an interest rate below Bank Base Rate but the SIPP does allow investment into other SIPP deposit accounts.
