Trustee Investment Plan current status

Signatureless process for the Trustee Investment Plan (TIP)

SIPP Providers and Trustees can have access to our 'signatureless' process for the following TIP requests:

  • New Business
  • Withdrawal of Units
  • Adviser Charge Alteration (changes to OAC% only)
  • Fund Switch
  • Monetary Withdrawal
  • Change to Regular Income
  • Cancellation

The use of a signatureless process removes the need for you to obtain a ‘wet’ signature from trustees. Nevertheless, if your internal process requires a signature then you should continue to follow this process.

This process will be reviewed regularly and may change in the future.

However, we’ll only accept submissions of signatureless requests from one of the following:

  • Scheme Trustee/Administrator

  • Delegated Authority

Available methods for submitting requests:

  • Regular electronic submission route or via the Customer Support team email with confirmation that they are acting on behalf of the Scheme Trustee/Administrator

  • Postal/hardcopy
