Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) Accounts

A Complete Turnkey Solution for Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) Accounts1

Open an Account

Interactive Brokers (UK) Limited supports the ability of SIPP Beneficiary accounts to trade through an IB Cash account, but only through a pre-approved SIPP Administrator2. We do not accept SIPP accounts directly. For a list of our pre-approved SIPP Administrators, click here.

SIPP Administrators now have the ability to open a master account, which allows their clients (SIPP Beneficiaries) to trade financial products (e.g., stocks, options, etc.) through IB. This is a great way for SIPP Administrators to create new value and attract new clients that seek low cost and best execution in worldwide markets.

How It Works

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 their 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.

SIPP Administrators (Master Account) enjoy the following benefits:

  • No fees to set up your master account.
  • Manage your SIPP Beneficiary subaccounts with our flexible online Account Management.
  • Comprehensive reporting, including online statements and reports available for all of your sub accounts.
  • Configure user access rights for your internal users to view statements, authorise trading permissions for any of your subaccounts, confirm subaccount funding requests, and more.
  • White branding is available at no extra cost.
  • Get listed on our website as a pre-approved SIPP Administrator so that any prospective SIPP clients can contact you regarding your services.
  • Offer your clients low cost and best execution to trade world markets.

SIPP Beneficiary Clients (Subaccounts) enjoy the following benefits:

  • IB's integrated approach makes it easy to trade multiple products on multiple exchanges and assets denominated in multiple currencies from a single account.
  • Trade on over 100 market centers in 23 countries.
