Pension investments

Defined Benefit investments

Providing best-in-class, cost-efficient investment solutions for Defined Benefit pension schemes.


There are more than 40 schemes that provide Defined Benefits (DB) within TPT's Master Trust structure, each of which has its own funding and investment strategy. This strategy, set by the Funding Committee, determines the required return to meet each schemes funding goals.

We use external Investment Managers (listed below) across a range of asset classes and investment styles to implement the investment strategy and we are focused on appointing managers that are aligned with our Investment Beliefs and Responsible Investment Policy.

Some of the key attributes that we look for include:

  • a long-term mind-set;
  • appropriate remuneration structures;
  • robust risk management; and
  • integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into their decision-making process. 

We carry out detailed operational and legal due diligence and monitor managers regularly to ensure that they continue to meet our expectations.
