Tax Risk Warning
Current pensions and tax legislation and HMRC practice could change in the future. This may affect the value of your wrap and pension benefits you receive from the Wrap SIPP if you have one. In addition, your individual circumstances will impact the tax treatment of the product elements of your Wrap and may also be subject to change in the future.
Capital At Risk Warning
The value of your Wrap will be determined by the valuation of all the investments held within it. Depending on the type of investments that you choose to hold within your Wrap, some of these may not return the amount you initially invested especially where their value can go down as well as up. This could also impact the level of benefits you can take on your retirement from your Wrap SIPP if held.
