BUYING A STAKEHOLDER PENSION Stakeholder pensions are sold by the same banks and insurance companies that market pensions as a whole, but you may find the range of providers rather limited and you will not find much advertising nor a great deal by way of advice. The reason is simple: the government's cap on charges leaves little scope for the providers - by contrast, for example, with companies which sell unit trusts or with-profit bonds. You need to monitor performance, as you would with any investment.
On your £7,000 outlay, that represents a return of 15%, around five times the rate of inflation. You have beaten the pension crisis! HOW TO EARN 10% This staggering rate of return is reduced if you pay standard-rate tax, because you get relief at 22% rather than 40%. If you are a standard-rate taxpayer and make the same contribution, your £15,000 fund would have cost you £10,600, so that the £1,063 a year would still give you a yield of 10%. And these annuity payments are coming from major insurance companies, so the risk is low.
If your employer contributes, then it is probably worth making an Additional Voluntary Contribution (AVC) - unless their contribution is very small or you have reservations about the investment policy. Your AVC can be used in one of two ways: to buy added years or to build up a pot that amounts to a money purchase scheme. All that you pay into an AVC will be taxdeductible. AVCs will also be possible under Turner's proposals. Added years is a highly attractive option, which is generally offered only in final salary schemes run by central or local government.
