Investing with us

Our investment solutions are built around 3 key pillars:
The three pillars of our investment solutions platform
Investing with ease
Our default investment strategy, FutureWise provides a solution for all retirement options.
FutureWise has been designed for the era of auto enrolment and pension flexibilities. It targets an asset mix at retirement that can generate sustainable income, but also deliver the capital stability required by those buying an annuity or taking cash. It uses a wide range of investments to increase the level of diversification and reduce the level of volatility, with the governance and oversight conducted by Fidelity. It uses a sophisticated risk-controlled framework and aims to target consistent and sustainable outcomes for members over time. Taken together, these factors aim to help members make the most of their savings throughout their working lives, while leaving them the flexibility to take their retirement income in the ways they choose.
A key advantage of FutureWise is that we remain responsible for the ongoing governance and suitability of the strategy, minimising the input needed from the employer. If, as plan sponsor, you want to play a more active role in designing the investment strategy, we can construct bespoke solutions together with you and / or your consultant.

We have Costs and charges on our Workplace Pensions website to support trustees in providing transaction cost data and illustrations to show members the impact of costs and charges on their retirement pot as per the regulations which came into force on 6 April 2018. When searching for their scheme, members can use the scheme code, their employer name or the URL all of which are provided on their member benefit statements.
Please note that trust-based schemes are currently only covered by these regulations, although this may change in the future as the Financial Conduct Authority look to improve transparency for all investors.
