Defined contribution

Meeting DC participants changing needs with bespoke solutions for plans of all sizes to achieve their specific goals

Traditional DC as we know it is changing

Key retirement challenges:

  • Complexity: Which investment options will your participants need, and choose?
  • Accumulation: Will they be equipped to save enough for retirement?
  • Market risk: What happens if the market drops, especially as they’re nearing retirement?
  • Longevity: How long do your participants expect to live?
  • Inflation: What will things cost in the future? Will prices rise gradually or spike occasionally?
  • Consumption: What goods and services will they need?

Our approach to these challenges

  • Targeting alpha for the accumulation phase
  • Improving retirement income
  • Pursuing prosperity through ESG and sustainable investment
  • Innovative solutions
  • Efficient systematic capabilities
