Retirement Account


Actively managed multi-asset portfolios, established track record, robust governance.


Our three portfolio ranges are designed to help your clients achieve a variety of their goals.

  • One of the largest multi-asset fund ranges with over £83bn invested*
  • A competitive charging structure that’s easy to explain to your clients
  • The reassurance of an established track record
  • Robust governance framework designed around helping to deliver good customer outcomes 
  • Innovative drawdown solutions supported by sound governance, including external oversight.

We believe asset allocation has the biggest impact on long-term performance.  Our investments focus on long term strategic asset allocation. Our experienced asset allocation team monitor, review and manage asset allocation, with the goal of ensuring our funds continue to meet their objectives and aims.

Our multi-asset portfolios can be used in any combination of investment options within Retirement Account, meaning they are versatile for a wide range of clients and their retirement needs.
