Launched by Stadia Trustees, the directory provides a one stop, information portal for Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPP)and Qualifying Recognised Overseas Pension Schemes (QROPS) investments that are permitted and allowable under HMRC rules.
Called SippWise, investors and Independent Financial Advisors (IFAs) can access a wide range of information on permitted and allowable investments. Some of the more unusual investments available through the directory include farmland, oil and a football fund.
All unregulated investments on SippWise undergo strict due diligence tests, independently undertaken by Stadia Trustees.
Tony Hales, Managing Director of Stadia Trustees said: “SippWise is designed to be an instant source of information to allow investors to take control of their pension plans. Through our online search capabilities and regular updates via blogs and newsletters, we hope to provide first class pension administration advice.
”“We are providing a range of investments greater than ever before, and all permitted under HMRC rules. Our due diligence testing, conducted on all investments in the directory, helps investors to have a level of confidence when choosing investments for their SIPPs."
Stadia Trustees is a member of the Association of Member Directed Pension Schemes and in the UK is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
