"My SIPP was up 85.1%, whilst my
stakeholder pension was down 1.3%"

: A SIPP is a type of pension for people happy to make their own investment decisions. Investments go down in value as well as up so you could get back less than you invest. The rules mentioned are those currently applying and could change in the future. You can normally only access the money from age 55. Tax reliefs depend on your circumstances.

I have transferred various pensions to my SIPP at Hargreaves Lansdown. I must say I have received an excellent service by phone and by email. All the hassle was taken from me by HL and made my life a lot easier. Also dealing in funds online and switching is straight forward.

A SIPP is one of the most tax-efficient ways of saving for your retirement which puts you in control. Before investing you need to be aware of the risks, in particular that investments can go down as well as up in value, especially over the short term.
You also need to remember you cannot normally access your money until at least age 55, at which point you can normally take up to 25% tax-free and a taxable income from the rest. Tax rules can change and the exact amount of relief available on contributions depends on your circumstances.
