Pension Provider UK
« on: March 02, 2016, 04:42:29 PM »
I have an old company pension in the UK which s currently held with Aviva.

Does anyone have any suggestion of somewhere better I could move it?

I looked at vanguard but it seems to be different back in the UK.

Are you looking to cash in the current pension then invest the money or simply to transfer to another pension provider?

Is better = lower fees or something else? If you want something simple and hand-holding a SIPP may not be for you, if it is then:

^Be aware that a " - " in the row for a SIPP generally means 'same as above' rather than 'free'

Also, if you are on board with the mmm-thing, go for a fixed fee straight away- I went for a % fee because it was cheaper for the first year; saved WAY more than I thought and am now having to look at exit fees for moving and the hassle of arranging a transfer [Oh the horror and pain of my difficult life with my pension growing so fast #MPP /s].
