Welcome to the microsite for Edinburgh Fund Managers Group plc Retirement and Death Benefits Plan (“the Plan”).

The Plan is managed by a corporate Trustee, Aberdeen Pension Trustees Limited. This microsite has been set up by the Trustee with support from the sponsoring employer, Aberdeen Asset Management plc (part of the abrdn group), so that members and other parties can access certain documents relating to the Plan.

Legislation has been introduced to encourage transparency of trustees’ investment policies for occupational schemes in the UK. Part of these requirements are for trustees to make certain documentation available on a publicly accessible website, and any such documents will be made available on this microsite.

For members of the Plan seeking other information about their benefits, please contact the Plan administrator. Contact details are shown below.

Statement of Investment Principles

The Statement of Investment Principles (or ‘SIP’) is a written statement agreed by the Trustee, which sets out the governing principles followed when investing the Plan’s assets. There are detailed requirements for the contents of a SIP, and it is prepared in accordance with all relevant legislation and best-practice guidelines. The SIP is reviewed and updated periodically by the Trustee, to reflect any changes to the Plan’s investment strategy or regulatory requirements. The sponsoring employer is also consulted when any changes to the SIP are considered.

The implementation statement demonstrates how the Trustee’s policies set out in the Statement of Investment Principles have been adhered to over the previous year.

This document is a new regulatory requirement for trustees, and 2020 is the first year that this has been published.
