    I now have a response from AJ Bell. I asked about the offer to refund transfer charges. Although it says it is for transfer over 20,000, if 2 schemes are transferred in and one is smaller than that, would that one still qualify for the offer, Answer yes, if in accordance with T&C.

    About the range available at Fidelity, and prompted by a post on the Savings & Investments board here, I found

    From Q1 we are introducing the option to purchase shares as part of our new share dealing service. This will be introduced in stages starting with the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250. FTSE All Share, bonds and international equities will be added in Q2.

    I phoned and asked if it was possible to throw a bit more light on when in Q2. Possibly May.

    So my dilemma is whether to transfer and have have some uninvested cash for a while, wait before starting the transfer (but this would an annual charge), etc,

    Oh, I forgot to say, the dealing charges in the Fidelity SIPP are still currently 0.1% but will change later in the year to like their ISA and ordinary share schemes.

    Hugely excited at the prospect of Vanguard Investor offering a SIPP later this year. Consider waiting for them for their ISA range is amazing.

    (They've confirmed this to me in writing - an existing ISA customer.)

    I have my core holdings invested in VLS. The potential offered by a Vanguard SIPP will be very good news for those with all their eggs in the Vanguard basket as the charges are likely to be negligible. They are a good company (no beef about that) but anyone who wishes to invest in anything other than their funds may be instantly deterred unless they offer an open-market platform.

    Currently I pay zero charges for dealing funds plus a 0.25% platform charge, plus Vanguard's excellent 0.22% tracker charge....

    but ...

    ... that platform charge allows me access to the majority of mainstream ITs, shares and funds. The thought of having to transfer cash to a different platform simply to rebalance my portfolio isn't too attractive.

    Sorry, don't mean to dampen your enthusiasm but a Vanguard SIPP may not be suitable for every Vanguard investor.
