Friday, 25 July 2008 12:00

A reader from Newcastle wants to know which stakeholder pension scheme has the best trackrecord.

Our pensions expert, Tom McPhail, a leading commentator on pensions at Hargreaves Lansdown with broad experience of pensions and investment related issues, takes him through the problem.

Robert from Newcastle upon Tyne asks:

Which stakeholder pension scheme has the best performance record?

Tom replies:

This is a bit of a ‘how long is a piece of string’ question.

There are a couple of dozen stakeholder pension providers in the UK, and they all offer a choice of investment funds, including with profits, cash, equities and so on, so picking the ‘best performer’ a little arbitrary.

Scottish Widows’ Stakeholder has competitive charges and a good range of well managed funds, as do AXA and Standard Life.
