    Interactive Investor will only charge 99p per regular investment trade. This will be taken from the £7.99 “free” trading credit awarded each month. So for £9.99/month you can get about 8 purchase trades, so long as you are happy with autopilot investing (occurs around middle of each month).

      Yes, I ignore “regular” investing as I don’t do it. Passive investors with small pots are the target market for that, I imagine. I trade pretty much every day, so the cost of standard trades is important to me.

      What I’m most surprised by is that AJ Bell’s £100 a year SIPP hasn’t been challenged by anyone in many years. Vanguard are taking forever to get their SIPP platform going.

    “Merryn is worried by regularly recurring proposals that pension money should be able to be used as house deposits.”

    I believe it is an idea from Singapore where one can borrow from pension pot for house deposit, but have to pay back in timely fashion.
