How we work with Superannuation funds

We are focused on helping you invest to meet the changing needs of your members and achieve better outcomes.

In an evolving environment with growing regulatory requirements for defined contribution schemes, our highly experienced team partners with you to guide your trustees on best practice and compliance. We can provide advice on your scheme's direction, investment strategies, or take care of your day-to-day investment decisions.

A partner focused on member needs

We are highly attuned to the challenges that defined contribution pension schemes face. In working with us, you have access to:

  • Long-term partners committed to ultimately improve outcomes for pension fund members  
  • Nimble advice and strategies, thanks to our scale and experience in defined contribution pensions 
  • Analysis to help you monitor your members' outcomes, and understand how they fared

The returns you need, mindful of your journey

Through a variety of strategies, we can help you solve some of your members' most acute challenges.

In addition to achieving the desired level of investment returns that will provide your scheme's members with adequate income to retire, our team takes due care to manage risks for a smoother investment journey. These include the use of intelligent diversification, a more active approach to asset allocation, and knowing when to use active fund managers, while being competitively priced and easy for members to understand.
