A number of third party SIPP and Offshore Bond providers utilise the Novia GIA. The process is very straightforward with the Adviser and client opening up the external wrapper and filling in the relevant paperwork to outsource the custody to Novia.
The third party provider then sends the money across for investment on the Novia platform. Once on platform, the Adviser is able to manage the client investments (subject to any restrictions with the external wrapper provider).
The list we have provided below represents the majority of our suppliers but is not definitive. Please get in touch if you would like more information about our Third Party Suppliers.

AEGON Ireland is authorised by the Central Bank of Ireland and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority for the conduct of UK business, which means we act in line with the European Life Directives. In addition, under Irish Law, we are required to keep investors assets completely separate from our own.
In the event of AEGON Ireland being unable to meet its liabilities, planholders who were habitually UK resident when the contract commenced will be protected by the provisions of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). Insurance business of the type transacted by AEGON Ireland is generally covered for 90% of the value of the whole claim, without limit. It should be noted that some categories of investor are excluded.
Novia platform users have access to the AEGON Ireland Wealth Management Portfolio (WMP) which provides some of the following benefits:
Enhanced tax control compared with investing in onshore bonds
Asset switching without triggering a UK CGT liability
Easy access to the funds on a regular or ad hoc basis
Virtually tax free growth
Being self assessment friendly as classed as a non income producing asset
A further tax benefit of using a Dublin based offshore bond provider involves VAT on Discretionary Fund Management fees. For providers based in the Isle of Man, DFM fees need to be subject to UK VAT, whereas Discretionary Fund Management fees are exempt from Irish VAT. This means that the DFM charges no VAT, and none is accounted for by the Irish life company.

Every client gets their own personal Pension Administrator, who holds industry-recognised qualifications. To us, you are not just another customer − we understand that every client has specific requirements.
We are here to make the complex world of pensions simple.
Hornbuckle has been a robust force in the retirement market for more than 30 years.
During this time, we have been at the forefront of specialist pension provision, focused on providing maximum investment flexibility to our clients underpinned by technical expertise, risk control and service excellence.
As a leading specialist pension provider, we focus on two types of pension solution: Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) and small self-administered scheme (SSAS).
Full SIPP: Our Full SIPP provides your client the freedom to choose to invest their funds in a wide variety of investments including commercial property, OEICs, Unit Trusts and Unlisted Shares. The client also has the option of using their fund in supporting borrowing for the scheme.
Single SIPP: The Hornbuckle Single Investment SIPP is a low-cost self-invested personal pension. It can be used in the accumulation stage of pension planning and to take income drawdown. With the Single Investment SIPP, your clients can hold cash with Bank of Scotland and select one other investment. This can be a standard investment or certain non-standard investments.
SSAS: If your client is a business owner or senior employee, a Small Self-Administered Scheme (SSAS) could be a good choice for them. SSAS gives your client the freedom to invest in their sponsoring company. For example, they could borrow from the scheme to fund the purchase of company permises instead of borrowing from the bank. Our professional trustee and pension administration services are designed to make sure that the scheme complies with all regulatory requirements.
Signature: Signature is our market innovation designed to purchase and administer tenanted, single-lease properties efficiently. We've called this process Signature as after some initial decisions by the client, all that is required is a signature. To find out whether a property qualifies for our Signature service and how much it may cost, you can access our Property Evaluation tool at: http://hornbuckle.co.uk/signature-wizard
Investment Selector tool: Understanding what can and cannot be invested in a self-invested pension and how those investments are treated is not always clear. Not at Hornbuckle. We've created the 'Investment Selector', a web-based interactive tool that provides a quick and simple reference guide for the wide range of investment types that we permit. You can access the tool on our website at www.hornbuckle.co.uk

Our inheritance tax solutions:
Estate Control Bond (ECB)
The bond is structured as a series of endowment policies which mature on a series of predetermined dates set by the Settlor. The Trustees have the ability to extend the maturity dates (some or all) to a later policy anniversary. The Trustees also have the ability to surrender or make assignments (to the Beneficiaries) of individual policies whenever they like (even during the Settlor's lifetime). Assigned policies can then be run as separate investments or surrendered. ECB is a Chargeable Lifetime Transfer Trust. The Trust is IHT free after 7 years, with any growth outside of the estate immediately.
Estate Management Bond (EMB)
The bond is structured as a series of non-surrenderable endowment policies which mature on a series of predetermined dates set by the Settlor. The Trustees have the ability to extend the maturity dates (some or all) to a late policy anniversary. EMB is a Chargeable Lifetime Transfer Trust. The Trust is IHT free after 7 years, with any growth outside of the estate immediately. There are additional tax benefits with this plan.
Estate Transfer Bond (ETB)
The bond is structured as a series of non-surrenderable endowment policies which mature on a series of perdetermined dates set by the Settlor. The Trustees have the ability to extend the maturity dates (some or all) to a later policy anniversary. As the bond is non-surrenderable the Settlor is assured of an 'income' (as adult Beneficiaries are entitled to ask for their share under a Bare Trust). The trust is IHT free after 7 years (discounted initially) with any growth outside of the estate immediately. ETB is a Potentially Exempt Transfer.
Other offshore solutions:
We also offer a range of single premium offshore bonds to suit different client needs. These include a stand alone offshore bond designed for UK residents, a highly personalised offshore bond and a capital redemption bond.
Working with clients, Advisers and alliance partners, we set out to create products around specific needs. Whether we are creating a new type of product or designing a one-off structure, we apply high levels of skill and care to the task. Because of the way we work, the products we design appeal to international investors from different countries and jurisdictions.
