SSAS Investment Options

Unlike a ‘standard’ personal pension a SSAS pension has the ability to invest in a much wider range of investments, including directly into commercial property. This allows you to create your own personal retirement strategy, instead of being restricted to an insurance company’s own range of funds.

In essence, a SSAS pension allows a much broader range of investments compared to traditional pension arrangements. These include:

  • Commercial Property
  • Industrial / Retail Units
  • Agricultural Land
  • Commercial Land
  • Regulated Collective Investments such as Unit Trusts, OEICS and ICVCs
  • Gilts and Fixed Interest stocks
  • Investment Trusts
  • Direct Quoted Equities
  • Trustee Investment Plans
  • Loan back to the Principal Employer

Not all SSAS providers will allow investment into each of these options. For example, some insurance based contracts will not allow investment into commercial property.  It is important to check the rules of your SSAS provider before attempting to invest your pension.
