A cracking company

I have a SIPP with HL which has proved to be both useful and fun. Useful as I was able to consolidate a few 'bits and bobs' pensions into one pot and manage it myself. I trade shares within it which I enjoy doing, especially the research on potential stocks and shares. I can add cash whenever I want and gain relief at my highest Income Tax rate. I can also take the pension at 55 if I so desire which is a comfort as you never really know what's around the corner health wise. It's internet based so I can trade whenever I want and jobs are placed when the respective market open for business. I find this incredibly useful as I work shifts.

Really flexible product

The value of shares can go down as well as up

Private Pension

SIPP which means that I chose which investments to make. Downside is risk factor. able to have a range of investments from bonds to individual shares. Can take funds from age 55 to 70 . 25% lump sum is available free of tax. Frequent newsletters via post and e-mail. Can add further funds if required, I researched the companies that offered SIPP and Hargreaves offered best terms in my view.

HL are probably the best for this

If you do have to ring up then you always get a person in the UK (Briastol actually) They answer my naive questions professionally , Without talking down to me or using jargon. Their regular uodates and newsletters seem very good. I really should read more of them But never have time Since moving to my self invested pension, where I choose the investments, I have actually increased my pension pot, and got paid out each month

Hargreaves Lansdown financial services

Hargreaves Lansdown financial services are probably the best of a bad lot (financial institutions in general). One of their 'consultants' then came to visit us to offer their bespoke investment services. He was extremely critical of what we already had in place (even though my wife who is an accountant has done a sterling job with our finances over the last 20 years). What he offered was very expensive with no guarantees that their performance would be any better than a standard tracker product.

wide range of services

too much paperwork

Hargreaves SIPP - Shares too expensive

If you are like me and only have a small pension 20k, then Hargreaves are not worth the effort. They have high management fees if you are holding shares, you get no bonus and you pay the one of the highest share dealing fees £11.95 per trade, unless you are making a lot of trades a month and then they drop the rate to £5.95, which is still pricey.

If you have lot to invest, then maybe Hargreaves are for you. I wish I had not moved my SIPP to Hargreaves, they are money grabbing leeches and only pray on small holders like me. They dont care about us little investors.

Customer service is OK, until you have a problem, at which point they don't answer Emails and promise call backs that never happen. If you have a small SIPP, DO NOT USE HARGREAVES.

Only Care about big investors

Don't care about small SIPP value
