Your investment options
Members of this pension plan can invest their pension savings in either:
1. An investment fund
A fund can invest in a range of things such as property, shares, bonds and cash. It is run by a fund manager whose job is to ensure that the objectives of the fund are being met on behalf of the investors.
If you select one of our Target Date Funds, you will also be choosing a fund that adjusts the way your savings are invested as you get closer to your target retirement date and beyond. For more information see our Guide to Target Date Funds.
2. A lifestyle profile
This is an investment strategy that automatically adjusts where your pension pot is invested as you approach your selected retirement age. A typical lifestyle profile is designed to offer the potential for growth in the long term but as you get closer to retirement, your money is gradually moved into funds that are more stable. The investment strategy can also be aligned to your plans in terms of how you intend to use your pension savings in retirement.
To find out more about funds including our Target Date Funds, and lifestyle profiles and how they work please see Your Investment Guide.
