Despite significant innovation across the industry over the past few years, defined contribution (DC) default investment options are still largely based around passive equity allocations designed to provide a low charge solution for scheme members.
But does such a low-cost, passive offering remain the best solution for the vast majority of members?
This webinar, held in conjunction with Columbia Threadneedle Investments and Schroders, looks at the future of DC defaults – asking why schemes should consider a more sophisticated model that includes a broader range of asset classes, including private market, real estate and infrastructure as well as a diversified portfolio of equity and fixed income assets.
It will also assess the barriers to some of these changes – looking at the cost implications of including these assets in a default portfolio as well as the governance and implementation challenges of such options for scheme trustees.
The webinar will also assess the growing role of master trusts in DC – asking how these schemes are innovating in default fund investing – and take a look at the evolving role of sustainability in DC.
