The future’s here already
Self-invested pensions for the modern world of retirement.
We provide you with all the choice and flexibility required from a SIPP, making it the only SIPP you will need both pre and post retirement.
Welcome to Curtis Banks, . We specialise in self-invested pensions and have grown to be one of the UK’s largest independent SIPP and SSAS operators. Our senior team has been involved with SIPP and SSAS since 1995 giving us almost unrivalled experience in this field. Since 2009 the Group has grown through a combination of acquisitions and organic growth and today looks after over 78,500 clients with £35.8bn* assets under administration.
Now that you are considering a Curtis Banks pension, or are already with us, let’s share some important points about working with us.
It is important to remember that we don’t offer financial or investment advice and don’t provide our own investments, leaving you and your adviser free to build a pension which works for your retirement goals. We can answer your questions but can’t offer recommendations or make decisions on your behalf, and will not be responsible for the outcomes of your decisions.
You choose what to put in your pension. We don’t provide investments of our own, so you and your adviser decide which investment providers, platforms and brokers you want to work with. Our only condition is that the firm meets our due diligence requirements.
If you have a financial adviser, we will normally deal with them directly to manage the day-to-day running of your SIPP. We’ll still be at the end of the phone if you ever need to talk to us and we pride ourselves on the dedication of our high-calibre, professional people in delivering the best service for our clients.
We’ll provide you and your adviser with access to our secure portal where you can view up to date information about your SIPP.
We’ll contact your adviser if there are any important changes that affect the operation of your pension. If we need to contact you directly, we’ll let your adviser know first.
We understand that choosing the right SIPP provider is an important decision, ensuring that a provider is financially stable and set to be around for the long term. We are delighted that the Curtis Banks Group has been given a strong ‘B’ Financial Strength Assessment rating from AKG as well as a 4 star rating for Service, Image and Strategy, and 5 star rating for Business Performance.
We are delighted that Your Future SIPP has been independently rated and received a 5 star rating from Defaqto for the last 5 years. We have also been awarded Best SIPP Provider at the Money Marketing Awards 2023.
We look after the pensions of over 78,500 clients with a value of £35.8bn*. Those pensions are administered by around 800 staff in Ipswich, Dundee and Bristol.
INVESTMENTSOne of the widest ranges of investment choices
Your Future SIPP gives you and your adviser access to a huge range of investment platforms, brokers and wealth managers, allowing you to hold a variety of investments within the same pension. This is much more flexible than many types of personal pension, with the added advantage of fixed fees which are increasingly competitive as your pension fund grows.
PUTTING YOU IN CONTROLPortal access comes as standard with all our pensions
Our online portal allows you to access your plan dashboard, giving you information on your SIPP at the click of a button. If you do have any questions regarding your SIPP you will be able to contact us quickly and efficiently via secure message. We continue to deliver a series of planned improvements to the portal, bringing you greater functionality to help plan for the retirement you want.
A PLAN FOR LIFEThe only SIPP you will need before and after retirement.
When you’re ready to take benefits from your pension, we’re here to help. You can withdraw your tax free cash all at once or take it in stages. You can set up regular income payments which can be amended or stopped at any time. You can take single payments from your pension as needed. We’ll help you access your pension in a way which works for you.
We continually strive to deliver an inclusive service for all. Everyone has the right to, and should be treated fairly no matter who they are or what they may be going through in life. If you consider yourself to have a vulnerability or require accessibility support, please feel free to get in touch to see how we can make adjustments.

Every relationship is important to us. Looking after your pension is an important responsibility, and one that we take very seriously. SIPPs and SSASs are complex, and no two plans or clients are the same. We have everything from simple portfolios run by a single investment manager, through to large syndicates of clients jointly holding multiple commercial properties. We work hard to deliver the highest standards of service to your adviser, so they can deliver the best possible service to you.
