Why self-invested pensions and direct property investment are on the rise

Pension investors who have accumulated funds over the years are looking at where their pension funds are invested and the charges associated with the underlying investments.

A growing number are making the decision that they want more control of their pension going forward. In the last ten years we have seen a substantial movement by the self-employed, company directors/senior executives and retirees, towards Self-Invested pensions.

A Self-Invested pension can sometimes be referred to as Self-Administered or Self-Directed pension. These terms include the following pension types: occupational pension schemes, known as SSAPS, Self-Invested PRSAs, Self Invested Personal Retirement Bonds and Approved (Minimum) Retirement Funds.
