Aviva offer a range of ‘auto-switching’ options for certain types of pension plans.

With these types of ‘auto-switching’ options, we make most of the investment decisions, so you don’t have to. Ideal if you don’t want to spend much time managing your investments.

We have several investment options available, depending on the type of pension plan you have. They all have different levels of involvement and risk levels, so download the relevant documents below to find out the details.

If you’re choosing an investment option, make sure it’s suitable for your circumstances and level of risk you’re comfortable with.

Please note if you have a workplace pension scheme: As well as the options below, your employer may also offer different investment options specific to their scheme. For details of what these investment approaches are, ask your employer.

If you’re unsure if these options are available under your plan, check your policy documents.

Please remember
The value of your investments can go down as well as up, and may be worth less than has been paid in.
