How It Works

A SIPP account 1 is a pension account available to all UK residents between the ages of 18 and 75 that allows customers to control their retirement savings and where they are invested. Customers who are employed or self-employed may contribute up to 100% of their earnings (up to £235,000) in any one tax year. SIPP accounts allow retired and unemployed customers to invest up to £3,600 per year and trade financial products, property and other items. Interactive Brokers (UK) Limited does not accept SIPP's outright; rather, it does accept a SIPP Administrator of a SIPP to open a master account. A SIPP Administrator's clients can then open subaccounts and trade their SIPP through Interactive Brokers (UK) Limited.

First, a SIPP Administrator opens a Pension Administrator account with Interactive Brokers (UK) Limited. This account will be your master account. Once your firm completes our online application and submits the required ID documents, we will review and approve your account.

Next, the SIPP Administrator (the master account) sends invitations to each of their respective SIPP Beneficiaries to open an IB account to make use of our online brokerage services. Once each SIPP Beneficiary subaccount is approved, the SIPP Administrator configures trading permissions for the subaccounts and, once funds are deposited, the SIPP Beneficiary subaccounts are ready to trade.
