Managed Services

If you feel you lack the experience or time to manage an investment portfolio, Shard Capital can help. Our full investment management service means we'll devise and execute a strategy to suit your specific objectives and attitude to risk, so you don't have to do the hard work.


Shard Capital offers a third Party SIPP. We take responsibility for the investment management and administration of the custody of the investments and cash, while a leading SIPP provider acts as the trustee. As the respective offering of any two SIPP providers can differ significantly, Shard Capital has relationships with a number of established providers so we are able to provide you with a high degree of choice: for example a particular investment may not be eligible for inclusion in one SIPP, but may be eligible in another.
