Understanding the challenges

The defined contribution sector continues to evolve at a fast pace as the industry works to implement the multitude of regulatory changes introduced in recent years. The challenges faced by DC pension schemes are diverse: value for money, consolidation and the increasing focus on sustainability are forcing schemes to reconsider their investments. Inflationary pressures and geopolitical uncertainty are making the search for long-term returns more challenging, which we believe highlights the benefits of an active and flexible investment approach.

Why Newton?

With four decades of investment experience and £83.6bn of assets under management (as at 30 September 2023), Newton is one of the UK’s most prominent active managers of DC pension investments.

Our DC strategies

While all our investment strategies can be included in a DC scheme, here we highlight a selection of actively managed sustainable, multi-asset and absolute-return strategies which are designed to meet the specific requirements of DC schemes and their members at each stage of the retirement journey.

Additionally, in response to growing demand, we recently introduced our FutureLegacy suite of sustainable risk-targeted investment strategies. These offer clients the opportunity to align their choice of investment to their risk appetite.

Newton manages a variety of investment strategies. How ESG considerations are assessed or integrated into Newton’s strategies depends on the asset classes and/or the particular strategy involved. ESG may not be considered for each individual investment and, where ESG is considered, other attributes of an investment may outweigh ESG considerations when making investment decisions. ESG considerations do not form part of the research process for Newton’s small cap and multi-asset solutions strategies.
