Option two – keep your SIPP with AJ Bell

*Exclusive offer – No custody charges until 2019*

Why choose to keep your SIPP with AJ Bell?

Choosing us is a way to keep your SIPP in safe hands. For more than 20 years we’ve helped people with their pensions, and we were the first company to offer a SIPP online. Stay with us, and you’ll continue to take advantage of our industry-leading experience and multi award-winning expertise.

But there’s more to it than that. We also know how needlessly complex investing can sometimes seem – even to experienced investors. That’s why we seek, at every stage, to make everything as easy as possible for you. If you're after investment inspiration, we have plenty, including Shares magazine (the leading online publication for DIY investors), regular articles and videos, our own AJ Bell Passive fund range and a list of our Favourite funds. If you’re after help, our customer services team will talk to you by phone, email or web chat. And when you’ve chosen your investments – from our wide range of investment options – our website and app make keeping track of your dealing easy.

Option two means you keep your SIPP trustee and administration service with AJ Bell as well as moving your investments to AJ Bell Youinvest, our award-winning DIY investment platform.

To help you decide if Option two is right for you, here’s a quick list of advantages:

  • All custody charges waived until
    1 January 2019
  • Low-cost dealing from £1.50
  • Multi award-winning SIPP
  • Easy-to-use website and mobile apps
  • Free weekly copy of Shares magazine (worth over £220 per year) if your balance is over £4,000
  • Lots of investment ideas, including our Favourite funds list and plenty of articles and videos – featuring our own Russ Mould, a regular contributor to Radio and TV
  • Our long SIPP heritage gives us the knowledge and experience to support you in retirement

The value of your investments can go down as well as up and you may get back less than you originally invested. We don’t offer advice, so it’s important you understand the risks, if you’re unsure please consult a suitably qualified financial adviser.
