The 3 pillars of our investment solutions platform
Investing with ease
Our default investment strategy, FutureWise, helps your members to prepare for retirement effectively and to look after their savings when they get there. It is designed by our investment experts, backed by rigorous governance and built around members’ needs.
The investment strategy dynamically adapts throughout a member’s life and gives them the flexibility to aim for the future they want. Our focus on sustainability integrates environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into the investment process, capitalises on Fidelity’s engagement with companies and aims to halve carbon emissions by 2030*, with net zero reached by 2050.
FutureWise is continually evolving and innovating to meet the future needs of your business and your members. We use our investment expertise, foresight and sustainable approach to ensure that together we can build a better future, starting today.
Bespoke investment strategies
Subject to appropriate investment advice, our team can also help create a more bespoke lifestyle strategy where:
- Each design can incorporate a range of investment funds including tailored portfolios
- Member accounts are automatically switched when your employees move into a new phase of the lifestyle matrix
- There is freedom to choose the duration and profile of the switching process
- Switching and rebalancing can be carried out quarterly (if there is only one fund in the accumulation phase) or annually
Your fund options
Fidelity clients have the flexibility to create their own investment menu, subject to investment advice, to suit their requirements, offering either our full range, a selection of funds, or a core investment selection as well as satellite specialist investment options.
Our current range of fund options includes:
- Global Equity
- UK equity
- Regional Equity
- Overseas Equity
- Diversified Growth
- Multi Asset
- Cash & Money Market
- Passive Equity
- Passive Bonds
- Smart Beta
- Target Date Funds
We have Costs and charges on our Workplace Pensions website to support trustees in providing transaction cost data and illustrations to show members the impact of costs and charges on their retirement pot as per the regulations which came into force on 6 April 2018. When searching for their schemes, members can use the scheme code, their employer name or the URL all of which are provided on their member benefit statements.
Please note that trust-based schemes are currently only covered by these regulations, although this may change in the future as the Financial Conduct Authority look to improve transparency for all investors.
