How your pension is invested

When you join the pension plan, the contributions that you and/or your employer make are invested in either a fund or a lifestyle profile that has been chosen for you. This is called the default investment option.

The default investment option for DC Investment Builder is a Legal & General Target Date Fund. To find out more, please see your Guide to the Target Date Funds or The Target Date Funds video.

Although it’s considered a suitable choice for most members, the default investment option doesn’t take into account your personal circumstances or future plans. With this in mind, given that you can make your own investment decisions, it’s worth considering whether it’s currently the most appropriate place for your pension savings to be invested.

For more information on your investments, see the Your Investment Guide.
