My Dad is 52 and works as a Sales Director. His job is more than just demanding, it’s psychologically and physically draining. On the plus side, he earns a very good salary. Meaning, when he reaches 55 (pension drawing age), he could potentially retire early. Which is what I’d like to see him do for the good of his health. A recent conversation with him on this subject sparked me to think about my own retirement.
A Self Invested Personal Pension, aka a SIPP, is a type of pension that gives you control over how you would like to invest your pension savings. Whether that be stocks, funds, bonds or ETFs, the range of choice will be dependant on the SIPP provider you choose. Popular SIPP providers include AJ Bell, Hargreaves Lansdown and the new, app-based PensionBee.
