Gold is used by some clients to diversify and enhance their investment portfolio. Investment grade gold bullion is the only physical commodity that can be held within a self invested pension.
Gold bullion can only be held within a self invested personal pension (SIPP) or small self administered scheme (SSAS) provided:
The simplist and most secure method of investing in gold bullion is via a UK direct gold investment service. Dentons uses the services of The Royal Mint, Sharps Pixley and Ravenscroft. These services provide the required gold storage arrangements and have sufficient controls in place to ensure that any monies are paid back to the SIPP or SSAS bank account only.
Due diligence checks will need to be undertaken by the client's financial adviser, where applicable, and Dentons before any instruction can be given to the gold bullion dealer.
Please note: Gold bullion can be a volatile investment asset with no guarantee of future returns. Dentons requires a minimum pension fund size of £50,000.
