Prudential Fund SIPP

Prudential was founded in 1848 and currently has total funds under management in the region of £340 billion.

The Prudential offer two SIPPs (Self Invested Personal Pensions), the Full SIPP and the Fund SIPP.

The Fund SIPP is far more restrictive than the Full SIPP and only allows investment into funds and selected external deposit accounts.

The minimum monthly contribution to the Fund SIPP is £100 with a minimum of £5,000 as a lump sum or transfer in.

As with the Full SIPP the mandated bank account is with Bank of Scotland, which pays a tiered rate of interest.
