Active management by our experts

Looking after your employees investments is central to everything we do.

We believe in active fund management, where experts look for opportunities for funds to perform better than markets.

This is different to passive funds, which simply aim to perform the same as markets. Nobody can ever promise that funds will always go up in value, and there’s always a risk that they may be worth less than what was put in.
