I transferred two private pension funds into a Sipp with HL last December(2016). The procedure was an easy one and relieved me, as I worried about complexity understanding their systems of buying and selling investments. This is proving simple to do with good clear record keeping and investment watching is very straight forward.
For me one of the bonuses has been their excellent telephone manner, patient and reassuring assistance .
A good place to start a SIPP.

Likes: £200 cap in holding shares and ETFs

Dislikes: Expensive to hold funds

If you have more than £40k in your SIPP, HL is very competive to hold shares and ETFs because of the £200 annual fee cap. However, the opposite is true if you hold open funds or unit trusts.

Just moved my SIPP from H-L to another broker that does rebate some of the Trail commission.

I liked everything else about H-L, They've been efficient in their admin and their website is informative and easy to use. I've been put off by the dealing charges and annual fee for shares, so have kept just to Funds. If they ever rebate commission then I'll be happy to move my SIPP back to them
