What are our investment options?

Our workplace pension gives your employees two main ways that they can invest their pension contributions. They can either use our specially designed default investment option. Or, for those who want more say in their investments, they can choose from a range of over 200 investment funds; including a sharia and ethical funds.

Whichever option your workforce decides on, they can change their mind at any time. It’s easy for them to alter their investment choices online and they won’t be charged for making a change. In some cases, other funds that employees choose may have additional charges - this will be clearly stated.
