What is a SIPP?

Save for retirement
Since the Financial Conduct Authority added physical gold to its standard assets list in 2014, UK investors can now gain up to 45% income tax relief on gold with their SIPP pension schemes.
This has opened up additional opportunities in ways to save for your pension with gold being seen as a safer way to save for retirement. With gold prices as they currently are, now is the perfect time to invest in pension gold.

Gold SIPP Pension Benefits
Here are some of the main benefits of setting up a gold SIPP pension when you buy Physical Gold through us:
- Safest form of gold investment, with no counterparty risk
- Qualifies for your SIPP of SSAS
- Gold is stored in a leading, UK LBMA approved warehouse
- Gold bars are fully allocated and segregated
- Individual retail size bars provide ability to part-sell your holding
- Attracts up to 45% income tax relief
When you buy it as part of your pension, gold receives the same tax relief as other qualifying assets.
That’s 45% off the price of gold for top rate taxpayers. And any price gains are sheltered from Capital Gains Tax. While portfolio management costs, on paper assets, have steadily escalated over the years, there are no such costs on gold bullion. Once you have purchased the gold for your pension, it can be safely stored in a secure and LBMA approved depository.

Add Gold to your SIPP Pension for a Balanced Portfolio
The sheer amount of different assets allowed into a SIPP means you can achieve more balance within your portfolio and more balance means fewer nasty surprises when other assets drop in value.
Gold is especially appropriate for those entering the last ten years prior to retirement, who are looking for some protection of their pension value. You can simply transfer as much of your existing investments into physical gold for your SIPP pension and take advantage of favourable and stableadd gold to your pension gold prices.
Gold added to a SIPP pension can also provide a great hedge to riskier asset classes, for those a little younger, seeking capital growth. Physical gold provides balance because, unlike other assets, there’s no counterparty risk. It also tends to rise in value when many of the traditional assets fall, providing the portfolio insurance every pension should have. The recent volatile economic conditions have perfectly illustrated how traditional assets can all move down in value together, shrinking pension pots and leaving most people concerned about the reduced standard of living they’ll achieve once retired. When it comes to securing the future of your pension, gold is a more stable asset.
Qualifies for a SSAS
Gold bullion can also be purchased within a Small Self-Administered Scheme (SSAS) if you have a small company scheme and seek balance, growth and protection.
In the same way that gold offers SIPP pension holders an efficient form of investment, members of an SSAS can also take advantage of pension gold. Investors in the USA may wish to learn how to invest into a Gold IRA. As all our gold bullion is of 999.9 finesse quality, it meets the minimum standard of purity required by the Internal Revenue Service to qualify for a Precious Metals IRA. For this reason, US investors should take care to ensure that no collectible coins are included in their investment and that any gold coins and bars are 0.995% purity levels and above.
