We believe defined contribution (DC) is a simple formula based on timeframe, how much is contributed together with the net investment performance, and how to shape and access the benefit for the best possible member outcome.

Barnett Waddingham Defined Contribution DC

This is overlaid on the workforce based on their age and has three key components:

  • growth (building the pot of money)
  • shaping (helping members make decisions as they get closer to retirement)
  • access (using the pot of money)

In order to achieve both corporate objectives and member empowerment our governance and engagement solution segments the workforce to specifically target these three areas and aligns appropriate investment design to these stages.

Our client portfolio currently exists of 200+ DC schemes across Trust, Master Trust and Contract ranging in size.
