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?

My husband and I are new to investing and would like to make a minimum 10 years investment in Stocks and Shares ISAs, plus an ongoing £500 each a month. We're really keen on investing in ESG funds/companies only. To 'diversify', would it be better if one of us uses a robo-adviser and the other a traditional platform? For one to go active and the other passive approach? One higher risk than the other?

I work for my company which funds my SIPP directly. I will be receiving compensation in the coming months - is it possible to pay SIPP contributions from the compensation payment? If pension significant contributions are not possible, what might we consider when looking for a tax efficient home for the compensation?

I am a self-employed sole trader. Would my pension contributions count as a Business Expense, incurred in running a small business?
