The count is in. These were the most actioned articles of 2017, enabling SIPPclub Members to profit from high earning investments, flexible SIPP and SSAS, and peer-to-peer lending.
The Most Popular Investment Chosen By SIPPclub Members
The most popular investment of 2017 chosen by SIPPclub Members attracted many millions of pounds of cash, SIPP, SSAS and company money. It’s no surprise, considering it pays a market-leading interest rate of up to 12 per cent per year over a five year period, backed with first charge security on property. SIPPclub has monitored its successful track record for many years. Early in 2018, we’ll be carrying out another due diligence inspection visit to keep up to date with its progress. It's still open for investment. Read More »
Did You Make 504% In Each Of The Last 7 Years?
2017 saw much press about Bitcoin. We’ve reported on Bitcoin for some years, and following our latest piece in September, some SIPPclub Members took advantage of exposure to Bitcoin through a Crypto-Currency CopyFund. Despite wild volatility, they saw their money more than treble in the last three months of the year. Now hedge funds are investing heavily, many predict continued growth, while others believe it’s a bubble waiting to burst. If you like rollercoasters,

Crowdfunding And Peer-To-Peer For SIPP And SSAS
Following changes imposed on SIPP operators by the Financial Conduct Authority in the second half of 2016, there was hardly any SIPP money lent on peer-to-peer platforms during 2017. That changed towards the end of the year as a long-standing, well respected SIPP and SSAS operator entered the market, allowing access to a range of peer-to-peer platforms. A number of SIPPclub Members are now lending their SIPP money with this provider, and others are in the process of applying. Read More »
Why A Final Salary Transfer Could Be Best Now
Many SIPPclub Members took advantage of some incredibly high transfer values to collectively move tens of millions of pounds from final salary, defined benefit schemes to pensions in their own name. Many reasons were cited, including concerns about large deficits within some schemes, the ability to profit from pension freedoms, and potentially better benefits for those with ill health or reduced life expectancy. As transfer values remain high, this pattern should continue into 2018. Read More »

AJ Bell Is Often The Best Value SIPP For Stockmarket Assets
Over time, charges can wipe out a huge part of your fund. We like AJ Bell because there are no set-up costs. If you hold passive funds, which is our preference, or shares, investment trusts, EFTs, gilts or bonds, you pay one small fixed fee no matter how large your fund. And when you come to draw your benefits either as occasional drawdown or UFPLS payments, there's a small charge for the whole year no matter how many times you access your money (many SIPP and SSAS providers charge more than this for each payment). However, you should always compare charges in detail, because AJ Bell could be more expensive than other providers, depending on the type of stockmarket assets you hold.
Get Valuable SIPP And SSAS Insights Emailed Directly To Your Inbox Every Monday
As SIPPclub neither advises on, nor arranges, nor recommends specific investments or strategies, we're unable to say whether a SIPP or SSAS or any investment within it is right for you. Ultimately, it’s your money and your decision, and you should only proceed once you're satisfied you've undertaken sufficient due diligence. If you need advice, you should speak to your trusted adviser, or you could find a local adviser from Unbiased.co.uk. Alternatively, we'd be pleased to introduce to a suitably qualified independent financial adviser.
