Hornbuckle Mitchell Single Investment SIPP

Hornbuckle Mitchell has been trading since 1982 and currently has approximately 15,200 Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs) with assets under management in the region of £3.4 billion. Hornbuckle Mitchell also offers Small Self Administered Schemes (SSAS) as an alternative to SIPPs.

Hornbuckle Mitchell offer two SIPPs, the Full SIPP and the Single Investment SIPP.

As the name would suggest the Hornbuckle Mitchell Single Investment SIPP is aimed at investors who want to invest in one single asset, for example by retaining the services of a Discretionary Fund Manager, which they cannot do through a Personal Pension Plan.

Although only one asset can be held, in addition to the mandated SIPP bank account, the Hornbuckle Mitchell Single Investment SIPP does allow investment into a wide range of assets, with the exception of commercial property.

In common with the Full SIPP the Hornbuckle Mitchell Single SIPP has no minimum contribution levels for regular, transfer or lump sum payments.

The mandated SIPP bank account is held with Bank of Scotland, interest rates are below average, and because only on investment is allowed investors have little scope to improve upon this rate of interest.
