Experienced 51 year old investor
Anil is very confident in managing his money and has actively traded shares for the last twenty years. While he has made considerable gains he did suffer some short term losses in the year 2000 which have changed his approach to investing for the long term. He is happy that for his longer term investments he can use his TD SIPP to manage a fund of money for his retirement, while still trading with a smaller proportion of his portfolio to challenge himself against the market. Plus he can claim the tax relief that is available to him on his contributions.
The flexibility that a TD SIPP gives him allows him to invest not only in individual shares but also collective investments like Unit Trusts and ETFs, and fixed income Bonds and Gilts. He likes the responsibility of looking after his own retirement and would no longer trust another person to manage his money.
