Sunday Times Rich List 2013
According To The Sunday Times Rich List 2013
The UK's 1,000 richest residents have total wealth of £450 billion. Staggeringly, you'll need more than £75 million just to get onto this list.
"Someday, I want to be rich. Some people get so rich, they lose all respect for humanity. That's how rich I want to be."
Amercian comedienne Rita Rudner
"Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft, where we are hard, cynical where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is very difficult to understand."
F Scott Fitzgerald in his short story 'The Rich Boy'

An Interesting History Lesson On Wealth
If you look back 25 years to the very first Sunday Times Rich List in 1989, there are many different names.
Two that feature in both lists are The Duke of Westminster and The Earl of Cadogan. They're both massive property owners and their wealth has grown consistently over the years. Throughout history, property has performed well over longer periods, and this is perfectly in line with most people's primary requirement for their pensions.
Interestingly, The Duke of Westminster is the only person to have featured in the Top 10 in every one of the 25 years the Sunday Times has been compiling its list.

We're Doing Well, But Not That Well!
Whilst the UK's richest people are "doing very nicely, thank you", they hardly feature on the world stage. The Forbes List of Billionaires in 2013 shows that Alisher Usmanov, the UK's richest person, only makes 34th place in the world.

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.

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.
