Your investment options

You can choose to use an Automatic Switching Strategy
The Plan operates 3 Automatic Switching Strategies.  Each of the 3 strategies assumes that you will use the money in your Lifestyle Account in a particular way and that you will do so when you reach your 65th birthday.

The name of each strategy indicates the way in which you are expected to use the money in your Lifestyle Account.

  • The Target Drawdown Strategy (Default Strategy)
  • The Target Annuity Strategy
  • The Target Cash Strategy      

The Automatic Switching Strategies are usually most suited to those members who know how they intend to use their Lifestyle Account and when they wish to do so.

To find out more about how they work, please see section 'Automatic Switching Strategies' which is within your Investment Guide

You can set your Target Retirement Age to something other than your 65th birthday and you can do so by completing the Target Retirement Age form  

You can invest on a self-select basis

If you would like to make your own investment choices, rather than follow one of the strategies, then you can choose to invest in any of the 10 funds in whatever proportion you choose.
