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 headwinds faced by DC pension schemes are diverse: fee caps, 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.
