Recent Jumps In The Gold Price

Problem areas, such as Ukraine/Russia and Israel/Gaza, affect the world's economies. It's therefore no surprise the gold price has been on the move. Between January and March 2014, it rose 16%, though it fell back a bit.  It was on the rise again last month, increasing by as much as 8%.

Gold Can Be Bought With A SIPP

Unfortunately, you can't pop down to your 'Cash For Gold' merchant with your SIPP Bank Account to buy yourself a few gold nuggets. Your SIPP can only hold a particular type of gold, that's effectively SIPP approved.  You'll find details of how to buy gold for your SIPP in our Members Area.

AJ Bell Is Often The Best Value SIPP For Stockmarket Assets

That's our opinion.  Not just because AJ Bell was the first company to offer an online SIPP.  Nor that it's received many prestigious awards.  And not even because the wife of SIPPclub's Founder has an AJ Bell SIPP.  It's because it's one of the most competitive stockmarket SIPPs on the market. 

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.
