Notes@sipp was established in 2001 to deliver the highest quality of technical expertise and customer service in Self Invested Personal Pension provision. @sipp has grown largely on the quality of service delivered to IFA clients looking to invest in commercial property but has since grown to provide a service across the asset classes. With @sipp being totally independent from life company or fund management influences, this gives the IFA and their client total freedom to choose from the wider market and select assets to meet individual needs. The business initially supported IFAs in the central belt of Scotland but soon spread to cover IFAs across the UK. @sipp is now focussed on following a strategy to build a national provider of real SIPPs as the sector professionalises in response to market and regulatory influences.

@sipp Full SIPP

@sipp Full SIPP offers access to a wide range of investments and allows investors to buy commercial property, something not available on the @sipp Collective SIPP nor the @sipp Solo SIPP / Solo SIPP +.

The @sipp Full SIPP is available for investors to access direct or via their Independent Financial Adviser (IFA) and there are no minimum contribution levels.

The mandated SIPP bank account is held with Barclays Bank, and whilst this account currently pays no interest investors can open alternative deposit accounts within the SIPP.
