Sharps Pixley Gold For Pensions


Physical gold is a proven safe haven asset that has historically retained its value against inflation providing long-term protection for your pension.

In 2014 the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) added physical gold bullion to its list of standard assets making it an easily transferable investment should the worst happen to your pension provider. Sharps Pixley can work with your current provider or if you do not already have one then contact us directly and we will provide a list of FCA regulated providers we have been approved by. Please note that we are introducing you, not endorsing, nor recommending their services.

If you are a UK citizen then you may be entitled to benefit from up to 45% tax relief when investing in gold as part of your personal pension, up to the maximum annual allowance which is currently £40,000. In addition, any gains will be Capital Gains Tax (CGT) exempt subject to rules and guidelines by the HMRC.

Investors are offered a choice of investment grade bars with a purity of 99.99% produced by world leading and LBMA 'London Good Delivery' refineries, exceeding the 99.5% HMRC requirement. Once purchased, the allocated gold bullion is stored in our highly secure vault insured through JLT, a leading Lloyd’s of London broker. Please note that physical silver, platinum and palladium cannot be held in a SIPP or SSAS.

Sharps Pixley will only make payments to the bank account specified on the application form. Any change to this must be authorised by your pension scheme.

There are different approaches to buying physical gold with your pension:

  • Buy gold through your existing SIPP or SSAS 
  • Transfer part of or the full value of your existing pension to a SIPP or SSAS 
  • Make contributions to a new SIPP or SSAS

The storage fee is 0.3% p.a based on the market value of the gold. Sharps Pixley require two years of fees to be paid in advance and will add a 0.6% premium to the purchase price to reflect this. Any fees thereafter will accrue and be settled when the gold is subsequently sold. You will receive the sale proceeds less or plus any fees that have either accrued or were already paid in advance, depending on the investment term.
