Can you have multiple SIPP accounts?

The Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) gives you control over your retirement investments. But can and should you have multiple SIPP accounts or consolidate into one account?

Is there a limit to how many SIPP accounts you can have?

There’s no legal limit on the number of SIPP accounts you can open. Having separate SIPPs with different providers allows access to specialised investments and features. It also reduces risk if a provider changes service standards.

What are the downsides of having multiple SIPP accounts?

However, multiple SIPPs have significant drawbacks:

– Increased administrative burden tracking paperwork and records, which builds as retirement approaches.

– Must monitor total contributions and assets across all accounts to avoid breaching annual and lifetime allowance limits.

– Harder to balance overall asset allocation and rebalance your portfolio efficiently.

– Multiple fees and charges to pay, reducing your returns.
