Invest Today. Change Tomorrow.
Making a difference with DC solutions.
Defined Contribution Expertise
abrdn is a major provider of defined contribution (DC) investment solutions. We work in partnership with trustees, providers and consultants to deliver their desired accumulation and decumulation retirement propositions.
We believe in making a positive difference to our clients, society and the long-term future of our planet. As such, our longstanding responsible investing heritage incorporates environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors at the initial investment stage, and maintains them through robust ongoing oversight and active stewardship.
We currently manage over £28bn of DC across multiple asset classes.
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. We have divided our componentry across four distinct areas:
- Core Growth
- Core Defensive
Our DC Funds
A low governance range of pre and post retirement strategies designed for defaults:
- Core Growth– Low cost, ESG integrated range of growth funds
- Core Defensive – Low cost, ESG integrated and traditional passive range of defensive funds
- Enhancers – Designed to augment core growth and defensive holdings to enhance growth or ESG outcomes
- Diversifiers – Non-core and alternative asset classes designed to improve diversification within defaults
