  1. That is, they should each have their own white-list. I doubt you could push through an industry-wide one without it being set down in legislation because otherwise the Competition Act risks are too great.

  2. If anyone needs a white list to tell you what you can and cannot be putting into a SIPP, you shouldn’t be running your own investment proposition.

  3. James Hay’s list of permitted investments via its SIPP looks pretty sound to me. Investing in anything off that particular piste would certainly take some justifying.

    With only very few exceptions such as the purchase of a single commercial property, they should be restricted to demonstrably experienced investors only.
