SIPP Product at Interactive Brokers

No they don't have one yet.

I have had conversations with a SIPP Trustee/Administrator www.epml.co.uk who have been trying to get IB to move forward with SIPPs. I am starting this thread to see if others would be interested in trading through IB within a SIPP. If several people are interested we can point this out to IB in the hope that the business opportunity it presents will lead them to move forward more quickly.

If it was done through epml the SIPP would allow a very wide range of products including Equities, Futures and Options on Stocks and Futures. If anyone wants more information on the SIPP fees etc. it would be classed as the empl "bespoke SIPP" product, details of which are on their site.

So if anyone is potentially interested in trading through a SIPP vehicle soon or in the future please respond to this thread.

Regards,


Gareth

I would be very interested in this, although the Bespoke SIPP fees are a little high.

Also while it says you can trade futures and options on their front page, when you look at the details in the fact sheet this is not mentioned? Would they really let you write options in a SIPP :-)

I have looked into this with IG Markets. You can open long short positions in shares but you cannot trade the indices eg FTSE, DOW or currencies. I would think this applies to all SIPP providers.

garethb started this thread It is my understanding that you can trade "equity related options and futures" in a SIPP. In conversation with an epml representative I mentioned options on futures and they did not query this as an issue but It was a passing comment of mine rather than a dirrect question. I believe others do write straddles etc. within SIPPs. These things need clarification from a SIPP supplier. I will let the epml guy know about this thread so he can come on and answer queries if he wants.

You should be careful in conversation with sales people from financial services firms in the pension and life assurance area as they will often say something is not allowed (through ignorance or deliberately) because they do not provide it rather than because it is against the rules. My view on the epml bespoke SIPP fees is that I will save more than this per year in transaction fees by using IB rather than eg. ODLSecurities particularly if using option spreads etc.

I think you can trade CFD's through SippdealXtra and comdirect allowing access to the Forex markets and others.

Gareth,

I would be very interested in an IB SIPP account.

I trade the ER2 futures through them.

I am also in the process of moving my SIPP to IG Markets to trade the IWM CFD (Russell 2000 Index Amex Share).

Count me in !!

Cheers
