A SSAS pension has the ability to invest in a much wider range of investments than a standard personal pension.
What can a SSAS invest in?
SSASs have a large range of investment choices, especially when compared to many other pension schemes. Each SSAS provider will have their own rules in regards to which investments they allow, so you should check this with your provider before attempting to invest.
However, some of the investments that your SSAS may be able to invest in include;
- Commercial property
- Industrial/retail units
- Agricultural/commercial land
- The principal employer
- Unit trusts or other regulated collective investments
- Investment trusts
- Direct quoted equities
- Trustee investment plans
- Shares in unquoted private companies
