I have a small pension which I have not drawn on yet, and I am seriously thinking about cashing it in, as I’m worried Brexit will mean substantial losses. Would I be better off just leaving it where it is?

My son has a savings plan with Witan Jump that is now being closed and transferred to Hargreaves Lansdown. However, Hargreaves informs me that I cannot transfer all the money (£26,000) into a Junior ISA account, because it's more than the £20,000 yearly ISA allowance. I would like to keep the remaining money invested, but would appreciate some advice as to how I could invest it for my son.

I have put the full allowance into my daughter's JISA. If for some reason I passed away, would the amount over £3000 per year be liable for inheritance tax?

I have opened my first Stocks and Shares ISA, and have a company pension on the new standard 5%/3% contributions. I have enough easy access savings to cover emergencies so I was wondering what would be a next good step, add to S&S ISA or open a SIPP for retirement?
