- Responsible Investment
We recognise that the management of environmental and social responsibilities is subject to many factors, and take into account the particular circumstances, industries and locations in which the companies operate.
We've produced guidelines on responsible investment to explain how we evaluate the environmental and social policies of the companies in which we are (or might be) an investor.
Our pooled pensions service
Our pooled pensions service
We realise that pension scheme trustees face significant challenges in meeting the long-term needs of their members, against an ever-changing pensions landscape. Our scale, resources and years of experience mean we're well placed to respond, by providing a wide range of funds tailored to your specific needs.
Across our pooled pension funds, we can offer you an excellent performance track record and competitive fee structure. Perhaps most importantly, our constant focus on putting our clients first means you can be sure you’ll receive an investment service that prioritises your individual goals.
As a pooled pension fund investor, you can access our investment expertise through our Trustee Investment Plan - an investment-only contract that pools your scheme’s assets with those of other schemes. The pooled approach has a number of advantages. It allows medium-sized funds cost-effective access to investment management services, and lets you benefit from the strong cash flow of the overall fund.
Our commitment to effective communications
We see our relationships with pension scheme trustees very much as long-term partnerships. Our commitment to keeping you informed is crucial to this approach – making sure you’re always fully informed about the investment issues affecting your fund.
When you invest with us, we’ll send you quarterly reports on your portfolio. These include our views on the outlook for different financial markets, our reasons for making particular investment decisions and, of course, full information on how your portfolio has performed. It goes without saying that you can contact us at any point to discuss any aspect of your scheme.
