Report Description


The SIPP market is increasingly diverging into two separate areas: lower-cost and lower-value platform SIPPs and full-range bespoke SIPPs. Despite the many challenges ahead, there is a place for both plan types. Bespoke providers will have to hold greater levels of capital, and yet more of them may be forced out of the market. But those who remain and employ stringent due diligence processes should be stronger as a result, contributing to a leaner and fitter marketplace.
