More information about these awards
Why did we come up this award?
Whether you're a beginner or an experienced investor, pensions are not the easiest topic to get excited about. And that's when everything is explained to you in simple layman's terms! Sadly, the financial sector has a nasty habit of using mind-numbing terminology when describing SIPPs. That's why we came up with the Best for Low-Cost SIPP for those with less than £50k.
This award honours those providers that provide consistently good value for money, transparent pricing, great website experiences, excellent customer service, and brand-spanking technology.
Sorry - what are SIPPs again?
For the record, these are Self-Invested Personal Pensions – and you can find out more about them here. If you're a basic rate taxpayer, you'll get £20 for every £80 you put in. Higher rate taxpayers can claim a further 20% on their tax returns. You might already have a decent chunk of money to invest - but it's not quite enough to get you a comfortable pension just yet. You may want to retire sooner rather than later - so you might be extra cautious about any charges which might eat into your returns. But comparing pension providers and understanding who are the cheapest SIPPs in 2022 is often no easy task.
And how does this information help me find the best low-cost pensions if I have less than £50k to invest?
We didn't just come up with these awards to brag about how great all these pension providers are. These awards exist primarily to help you - the customer - understand which providers could help make your money work harder as you plan for retirement.
As we mentioned, pensions aren’t an exciting topic for most people – which is why we’ve taken care of all the dull analysis so you don't have to. And as you navigate our website and compare low-cost pensions, do look out for those Best Buy logos next to the brand's name. We don't just give these out to anyone. Providers have to earn them – and we’re a tough crowd to please.
