Understanding the Risks

The TD SIPP is aimed at customers who have sufficient knowledge and experience of investing to make their own investment decisions and want to actively manage their investments. The TD SIPP is not suitable for every investor. Other types of pensions may be more appropriate.

The investment made within a TD SIPP can fall as well as rise and you may end up with a fund at retirement that’s worth less than you invested. You can normally only access the money from age 55. The tax treatment of SIPPs are based on individual circumstances and may change in the future.

We may receive two elements of commission in relation to international dealing - Trading Commission and our FX Charge. Please see our Rate and Charges for full details of the relevant costs.
