TrustNet and Jupiter offer Sipp guide

Online fund information provider TrustNet and manager Jupiter are teaming up to launch an education guide for investors about self invested personal pensions.

The two say there are anywhere up to 85,000 Sipp schemes running in the UK and a clear need to raise awareness both amongcurrent holders and eligible investors as to the scope and benefits of a Sipp.

The guide aims to raise knowledge both amongst Sipp holders and those who may be looking for the simplicity a Sipp offers.

Its publication follows TrustNet launching a pensions database at the beginning of the year, providing information on unit linked pensions products.
