What We Do

The Vermeer Partners SIPP

What is a SIPP?

A self-invested personal pension (SIPP) is a UK government-approved personal pension scheme, which allows individuals to appoint an investment manager and offers many more investment opportunities then a traditional personal pension scheme. A SIPP offers very flexible funding arrangements as well as the widest possible range of retirement options.

DP Pensions Ltd note that: “These features have led to rapid growth in the SIPP market, and SIPPs are now the product of choice for people looking for flexibility and control in their retirement planning.”


Why consider a SIPP or switch your pension provider?

A SIPP account generally provides you with a greater amount of control over the money in your pension than a typical employer pension or insurance company pension. It gives you the freedom and flexibility over how you withdraw your money and the option to appoint an investment manager to choose the investments within your pension.

Common reasons include:

  • Your current pension scheme doesn’t offer the options you are looking for at retirement
  • You have more than one pension, with different providers, and are looking to consolidate into a single pot
  • You are not able to invest where you’d like to, or you would like to appoint an investment manager to look after the investments on your behalf
  • You are looking for a cost-effective solution
  • You don’t receive an acceptable level of service at your existing provider

Growth potential

Holding a Vermeer Partners SIPP means you will benefit from the potential growth opportunity our investment strategies provide for clients.


Vermeer Partners cannot give advice on legal or taxation matters. A SIPP isn’t appropriate for everyone’s requirements and needs. If you are thinking about transferring or switching your pension provider, we always recommend you talk to a qualified Financial Advisor before making any investment decisions and check that you won’t lose valuable guarantees or benefits or incur excessive exit fees. In simple cases this service may be provided by DP Pensions Ltd, but we also work alongside clients’ existing financial planners or can connect you should you need to appoint one.

Pension and Tax rules can change, and benefits depend on your circumstances. The value of investments and the income derived from them may go down as well as up, and you may not receive back all the money which you invest.
