SIPP charges

The Freetrade SIPP costs £9.99 per month. We don’t charge a percentage account fee, so your investments can grow without your account fees growing too.

Investing in your Freetrade SIPP is commission-free*.

Capital at risk. Please remember tax relief depends on your personal circumstances and current rules can change. SIPP is a pension product designed for people who want to make their own investment decisions. You can normally only access the money from age 55 (57 from 2028). Before transferring a pension please ensure that you will not lose valuable guarantees or incur excessive transfer penalties.

SIPP fees comparison with other providers

Saving for retirement is hard enough, but high costs make it even harder.

That’s why we created a SIPP with a monthly fee, rather than charging you a percentage fee that grows with your pension pot. This way you can focus on growing your retirement savings, not the fees you pay.

SIPP charges FAQ

How do I pay for my SIPP?

You’ll only be charged for your SIPP once it is topped up. This could happen by making a payment into your SIPP (also known as a contribution) or by transferring your pension to Freetrade. 

The fee will be taken from your bank account on the day you first top up your SIPP and this date will become your monthly billing date for future payments.

Are there any fees to transfer my SIPP to Freetrade?

No, there is no transfer in fee when moving your pension from another provider to Freetrade. However, your current SIPP provider may charge, so please check with them directly.

Can I cancel or close my Freetrade SIPP?

You can only cancel or close a Freetrade SIPP (or any SIPP for that matter) within the first 30 days of opening it. After this point your SIPP cannot be closed and the pot of money you’ve built up will be preserved until you reach the age at which you’re allowed to access your pension (currently 55). You can still transfer your Freetrade SIPP to another provider at any point if you’d like to. 

To cancel your Freetrade SIPP, you should let us know through the in-app chat on the Freetrade app within the 30 day cancellation period. When you cancel within the first 30 days we will refund any SIPP fees taken.
