Pointon York and Seven IM link up for corporate Sipp

Pointon York Sipp Solutions is offering a corporate Sipp in conjunction with Seven Investment Management.

Pointon York is providing the Sipp wrapper and underlying investment platform and Seven IM is providing its suite of five multi-manager portfolios to sit within that.

The launch of the Sipp is expected in March and Pointon York will continue to develop its relations with employee benefit consultants and advisers in a bid to maximise distribution.

The five Seven IM multi-manager funds comprise offerings suited to different investor risk profiles – adventurous, moderately adventurous, balanced, moderately cautious and cautious.

Asset allocation is overseen by Seven IM chief investment officer Justin Urquhart Stewart.

The portfolios invest in a range of funds from such fund management firms as Artemis, Fidelity and Newton as well as more specialist boutiques such as GAM.

Seven also uses exch-ange traded funds to get low-cost exposure to certain indexes.

From the end of the first quarter, advisers using Pointon York Sipps will be able to view all their clients’ Sipp holdings in a consolidated format and access a dealing account and underlying fund supermarket, which is being built with Investia.

Seven IM director Thomas Sheridan says: “We are launching a corporate Sipp with PYSS and will be releasing more det-ails in due course.”
