Xafinity joins Openwork SIPP panel

21 February 2017


Xafinity SIPP Services Ltd has been appointed to the Openwork SIPP panel.  Members of the Openwork advice network can now recommend both the ‘full’ XafinitySIPP and its sister product SimplySIPP.


The XafinitySIPP offers the widest range of SIPP investment options, including commercial property investments.  Xafinity now administers 1700 commercial properties for its clients in the UK and sees this as a continued area for growth in the SIPP market.  


The low cost SimplySIPP is often favoured by advisers investing client funds with Quilter Cheviot, one of Openwork’s approved Discretionary Fund Managers.


Jeff Steedman, Head of SIPP/SSAS Business Development at Xafinity said: “We are pleased to be chosen to work with Openwork and we are already working closely with their advisers up and down the country.  Xafinity aim to provide a top class service to each and every Openwork adviser.  In particular, I believe we will be able to use our expertise in commercial property investment to enable more and more Openwork advisers to identify and deliver great solutions for their clients.”


Mike Morrow, Wealth & Platform Director at Openwork, said: “We are delighted to offer this further enhancement to our SIPP proposition and remain keen to ensure that our advisers can progress with real confidence and choice. The Xafinity product and the supporting service is excellent and contains all the options, particularly for commercial property.”


Andy Bowsher, Director of Self Invested Pensions at Xafinity added: “We are thrilled that Xafinity is able to provide our SIPP products to Openwork’s advisers. Our management team has worked very hard over many years to establish our SIPP business and its products.  It’s been a pretty crowded market for some time, but a new order is starting to emerge.  We have remained very focused on the basics of providing a great product with personal service, at the right price, and with a strong compliance backbone. This is what underpins our strength.”
