    Standard Life GPPP - Detailed Statements

    Standard Life GPPP - Detailed Statements 16th Oct 16 at 11:52 AM
    I look after the pensions for both myself and my partner and have been spoiled by the details that I am able to get of our SIPP transactions.

    I have just logged into my partners online Standard Life GPPP and all that it shows is the number of units held and the payments paid into the account. Is it possible to get statements that go into the details of prices paid, units and charges or is that all considered 'top secret' by pension providers?

    Not at all. However, they are not geared to provide the same level of data as SIPPs. They are geared to be low cost, low admin, simple options. Most of them run on software built decades ago when people didnt want that information. You find their newer version products nearly all have the data you see on SIPPs.

    Its a bit like having a TV from 15 years ago and asking if it can show ultra HD widescreen with dolby digital sound and integrate netflix and amazon prime etc.

    Thanks for your help!

    You're getting all that SL provides for their GPP. You can get prices by looking at when instructions were given and doing reverse calculations to work out just which day things happened. If you were to ask they could probably tell you exactly. The newer version of the GPP screens with the pretty graph showing combined investment values over time doesn't provide what you're after either.

    It's not so much hiding as it not being traditional and most people not really caring about such details.
