Private markets the benefits for DC schemes
Defined contribution (DC) pension schemes need to deliver the required returns for cost-conscious members.
The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results.
As one of the largest providers of defined contribution (DC) investment solutions, abrdn works in partnership with trustees, providers and consultants to deliver outcome led solutions for use in accumulation and decumulation retirement propositions.
Our long standing responsible investing heritage incorporates Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) factors both at the initial investment stage and through robust ongoing oversight and active stewardship, making a positive difference to our clients, society, and the long term future of our planet.
Our solutions are wide ranging, with broad diversification across asset classes.
ESG factors are at the heart of our investment process. We recognise that trustees and schemes will approach ESG integration in different ways depending on member views or governance constraints.
We offer a range of DC components which can be used within a DC default to help meet member needs across all phases of the retirement savings journey. These funds are available directly or via key institutional platforms and Trusts.
