Defined Contribution

Schroders has significant experience of managing DC assets and of helping pension scheme managers, trustees and sponsors to operate pension schemes efficiently. We manage assets for DC pension schemes in the UK and also have relationships with institutional investment platforms.

Our DC service is founded on innovative investment management, leveraging the full scale and diversity of our investment capabilities. This is backed up by a high level of service to ensure the successful implementation and ongoing management of pension schemes. We aim to work closely with all of the parties involved in a scheme, from the sponsor, trustees, pension department and advisers, through to the members themselves.

The delivery of long term value should be the driving force behind Defined Contribution investment decisions. Trustees and sponsors of DC pension schemes should consider the use of active global equity strategies as part of a robust investment design and review process.

The strength and depth of Schroders' multi-asset team has enabled us to be at the forefront of developing and launching innovative solutions to meet the needs of most institutional investors. Complementing our existing range of DC solutions, the Schroder Life Dynamic Multi-Asset Fund invests in a range of different funds and asset classes, while controlling risk by actively managing the asset allocation and incorporating low risk assets.
