Your pension is perhaps the most important financial investment you will ever make. Ensuring that you find the most suitable pension scheme for you and your current situation is vital for reaping the benefits once you retire.
Why leave your pension plans in the hands of previous employers or insurance companies, or invest in “off-the-shelf” products that are not beneficial to your financial situation?
Acumen provides expert pension advice across the North West, ready to set you up for a long and enjoyable retirement.

SIPP and SSAS pension schemes
For a better understanding of both SIPP and SSAS pension schemes, talk to our pensions experts at Acumen. We can help provide you with a better, more in-depth understanding of the pension that is best suited to you.
SIPP pension scheme
Self-invested personal pension (SIPPs) offer you the opportunity to take control of your pension, by allowing you to choose the investments within your pension to suit your priorities and preferences.
SIPPs have significant benefits – the key differentiator to a standard pension plan is the range of investments available.
- An extremely wide range of investment funds.
- Direct investment in stocks and shares.
- Cash deposits.
- Investments in commercial property.
- Flexible and tax-efficient way to turn your pension fund into retirement income.
SSAS pension scheme
A self-administered scheme (SSAS) is a special form of occupational pension scheme, designed for controlling directors of private companies.
The benefits and investment flexibility of a SSAS pension scheme are very similar to those of a SIPP. However, a SSAS has the additional benefit of being able to make loans to the sponsoring employer.
A SIPP cannot lend to the employer, so if pension-backed loans are important for your business, then a SSAS could be the pension scheme for you.Acumen Financial Partnership has been awarded the
