The Fidelity Diversified Markets Fund holds several different types of investments and has been selected for use in this kind of situation, when a fund is unavailable for investment. We believe it is a more appropriate option as a long-term holding than a cash fund. It has more potential for growth and less inflation risk than cash. Guidance from the Department for Work and Pensions and The Pensions Regulator states that when a fund is suspended, any alternative fund that members’ money is directed into must meet the standards of a ‘default arrangement’. This means it must be suitable as a long-term holding for unengaged pension plan members. As part of our house default lifestyle strategy, the Fidelity Diversified Markets Fund is reviewed regularly by internal and external committees, who assess its suitability as a long-term investment.
