Interactive Investor (Pension Builder) Review

Already the number one flat-fee provider for DIY investments, Interactive Investor is now extending that prowess to pensions. Compared to most of the competition, who charge percentage-based fees, it’s refreshing to know exactly what your pension is costing you: £12.99 a month.

Pension Builder is essentially a SIPP account, giving you the freedom to manage your own pension and take a more active approach to retirement saving. Mix and match funds, ETFs, investment trusts and the like, without having to worry about trading fees.

Interactive Investor is also great at helping you plan for your later years, with retirement calculators and jargon-free guidance to help you along. Another win from one of our favourite investment platforms.
