Retirement Account fund fact sheets and performance

The Retirement Account has its own range of investment funds. Please select the type of fund from the various tabs to view the fund fact sheets. 

The same funds are available to both Pension Savings and Pension Drawdown options but you can choose to invest in different funds for each part if you wish. If at a later stage you decided to move money from Pension Savings to Pension Drawdown then the funds you selected for Pension Savings will be used unless you tell us otherwise.

A range of retirement account funds

Active funds

Active funds are managed by a specialist investment manager, or team of specialists, who have a certain freedom over the investments they make. Investment managers use their knowledge and experience to attempt to beat the returns you could achieve by investing in a stock market index, over the long term.

The value of investments may go down as well as up. Taking income or withdrawals in excess of fund growth may result in the fund running out quicker than expected. Tax treatment depends on the individual circumstances of each client and may be subject to change in the future. Inflation will reduce how much the Fund is worth in real terms and inflation will reduce how much your income is worth over the years. It is essential to seek advice from a suitably qualified adviser. In respect of the Guaranteed Annuity, inflation may reduce how much your income is worth over the years.
