Property Investing With SIPPs and REITs

The introduction of SIPP qualified overseas property investments has assisted in the encouragement of increased investment options, with tax advantages and the possibility of deciding upon your own investment options for your pension fund plan.

Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPPs) are regulated by the Financial Services Authority (FSA) and allow holders to manage their own investments from their pension funds rather than having their finances managed by a chosen fund in the more traditional sense. This is a great alternative to those who are experienced in overseas property investments and wish to manage their own futures.

While it is not only property investments that are legible for the SIPP portfolios, the potentially higher capital growth on property, especially in the long term and from emerging markets, the gains can be far greater than stocks and shares.

Many new developments are SIPP recognised, so if looking for an overseas property investment for a SIPP portfolio, it is important to confirm that the property of choice is suitable. A suitable investment company will be able to assist with any questions and guide in the right direction for further detailed information.

While investing in some international property may withhold the tax advantages of SIPP investments, REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) have been designed with advantageous tax benefits. The combining of REITs and SIPPs enable investors to manage their own funds with tax advantages and have the profits incorporated into their SIPP fund.

Consulting with an investment advisor about the possibility of SIPP and REIT benefits when considering purchasing overseas property can lead to greater benefits from investments and future security.
