In order to qualify as a Single-Asset SIPP (level 1 fees of £195 pa), in addition to the main SIPP bank account held with Metro Bank, the SIPP may only contain one other non direct property holding. For example, this may take the form of either a single Discretionary Fund Manager portfolio, a single Platform, a single stand alone Unit Trust/OEIC/Trustee Investment Plan, or a single direct equity holding. As soon as the SIPP owns more than one of these assets, it is then treated as a Multi-Asset SIPP (level 2 fees of £355 per annum.) For investments in Multi-Assets including a commercial property, this is deemed level 3 with fees of £800 per annum.
Please refer to schedule of fees for full details.
