David O'Hara on Selftrade SIPPex

David O'Hara, Founder of Blackthorn Focus, was interviewed at the recent Selftrade SIPPex event. See the video here.

"SIPPs are a superb product enabling investors to take charge of their own long-term financial security" says Mr O'Hara. "I was previously unaware how many tax advantages there are of investing via a SIPP and the different assets that can be held there. Congratulations to Selftrade for putting on this event. The panel assembled was first class."

Blackthorn Focus believes tax-incentivised investment is vital for personal finance and the functioning of smallcap equity markets. "As explained at the Selftrade SIPPex event, shares in AIM-listed companies can be held in a SIPP, while they remain forbidden from ISAs. This aberration undermines liquidity in the UK smallcap market."
