DC Pensions

About

Defined Contribution Pensions

At its simplest, a pension is a long-term savings plan which will help you to plan for your retirement. At Schroders, our job is to invest the contributions paid into our funds by pension schemes. It is important that you have sufficient information in order to understand your pension saving – the decisions you make may affect your financial security in the future.

Visit this website regularly to access information such as daily unit prices, quarterly factsheets and brochures, helping to make the most of your DC Scheme.
