SCM Direct gives you the tools and information you need to open Single, Joint, ISA and SIPP accounts online.


If opening a joint account, both parties will need to go through the account opening process separately. The joint account will not be activated until both applicants have successfully completed the account opening process.

If opening a SIPP account, you must also open an account with Pointon York, our SIPP provider, using the link at the bottom of the page. You can do this once you have completed opening your SCM account.

If you would like to open a Corporate account, please contact us directly.

NB If you are an overseas customer without a UK bank account you will need to contact us directly to open your account.
