SQN has been a rollercoaster of incompetence, I would suggest one avoids it.

Re: Pension Transfer

I transferred a pension from Zurich to my current SIPP. When I checked with Zurich about any exit penalties or guarantees that might be lost, they also sent me a pack for the transfer which they said *had* to be filled out so I never used the current SIPP provider to do the transfer. I did this and ...

Re: Brokers offering regular ISA withdrawals

Good thinking puffster, I have just tried it and it does indeed seem to have worked! Many thanks for taking the trouble to post. All the best, CP Hi CryptoPlankton, I just tried setting this up and it does not work for me (regular ISA to dealing account transfer), bringing up an error message. Havi...

Re: Brokers offering regular ISA withdrawals

I now think that you can do it with II. Set up a regular internal transfer (monthly in this case) from the ISA to the dealing account for the amount you ultimately want in your bank account. Then set up a regular payment (monthly) from the dealing account to your bank account for the same amount an...

HYP top up spreadsheet - Mercantile IT

When using the Get Digital Look Forecast Yields button I get a "run time error 91 - object variable or with block variable not set". This seems to be triggered by the Mercantile (MRC) IT which recently went for a 10 for 1 split and it has only happened since this event. The latest HYP 11-5...

Re: Brokers offering regular ISA withdrawals

As far as I knew you can do monthly fixed payments from an II ISA, just choose withdraw/transfer cash from the cash transfers menu and specify it to be monthly. Regards, Puffster Hi Puffster I seem to be able to go through that process for my trading account, but not for my ISA - the frequency butt...

Re: Brokers offering regular ISA withdrawals

Both Barclays SmartInvestor and Interactive Investor are currently developing the facility to set up regular payments from S&S ISA accounts to nominated bank accounts. This would be handy as it will provide a simple method for drawing a steady income from dividends (leaving sufficient cash in r...

Re: Stock and Share SIPP - transfer to newco

You should be able to transfer your SIPP to another provider - and those charges would suggest that it would be a good idea. The target SIPP provider will arrange the transfer for you. I use AJ Bell Youinvest - there are other options. AJ Bell will cover some of your costs if your existing provider...

News for ITs Interactive Investor/DigitalLook

Is anyone else seeing RNS news stopping updating for most ITs on 17th January on Interactive Investor/DigitalLook/Webfg.com? Any ideas as to what is up - webfg seems to comes up with a SW script error when diving into the news items that you can see?
