Liberty Full SIPP

Liberty SIPP was established in 2007 and is a privately owned company offering three different Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs), the Liberty Full SIPP, the Liberty One SIPP and the Liberty ICON SIPP.

In total Liberty administer around 2,000 SIPPs.

The Liberty Full SIPP allows investment in a wide range of assets including commercial property, shares, gilts, corporate bonds, OEICs, SIPP deposit accounts and discretionary managers.

Liberty allows their SIPPs to be opened via IFAs (Independent Financial Advisers) or direct by the client and do not have a minimum contribution level.

The mandated SIPP bank account is held with Royal Bank of Scotland and pays an interest rate of 0.25% above Bank Base Rate, which is highly competitive for this type of account.
