What are Defined Contribution (DC) pensions
With a DC pension, the amount being paid in (the contribution) is a known quantity (defined) and usually a percentage of an employee's earnings. The employer makes contributions too. All the contributions are invested to give them the best chance to grow over time. The value of the pension savings at retirement depends on how well they grow while they're invested.

We keep things simple
We want members to be able to access clear, simple information in a way that suits them.

We also provide you with materials that you can share with your members, to help them make the most of their pension.
We're responsible investors
We were investing responsibly long before it was a requirement. It's not only the right way to work, but also an essential part of recognising financial risks and opportunities. We implement environmental, social and governance policies to secure the best outcomes, and actively engage in industry initiatives to help make a difference.
We're future focused

DC investment choices
You can choose from either our Target Date Funds (TDF) or Ethical Target Date Funds as the default options for your workplace pension scheme.
Our Target Date Funds provide a diversified range of investments. We alter our investment strategy to protect the value of our members' funds as they get closer to retirement.
Your members also have the option to make their own selection from a range of carefully chosen self-select funds. These provide flexibility and choice for those who want to be actively involved in how their savings are invested or have particular religious or ethical beliefs that need to be considered.
