Unfortunately, many are realising that their pension – if they even have one these days – will not provide for their future retirement needs. The days of companies and public sector organisations offering index-linked final salary pension schemes are fast disappearing.
Even the workplace pension scheme or “auto enrolment” will offer at best small returns. That’s why for some SIPPs are becoming increasingly attractive.
The Government introduced SIPPs a number of years ago. SIPP or (self investment personal pensions schemes) allow you to put different types of investments in 'one pot'. Money is paid in before income tax is taken off.
Portfolios could include:
• Exchange traded funds (ETF)
• Unit trusts and Open Ended Investment Companies (OEICs)
• Gilts and corporate bonds
• Investment trusts
Historically, over time gold has performed well. The precious metal is also often turned to in times of economic uncertainty and should be viewed as a medium to long-term investment.
For well over 30 years, we have been providing gold bars and gold coins for investment portfolios. We continue to be trusted in a competitive market place because we offer quality products and outstanding customer service.
If you would like to chat about your gold options for your SIPP, please get in touch with our knowledgeable and friendly team today.
