Endgame: Investment Areas of Focus

SECOR’s Investment Strategist, Devan Nathwani, comments on the upcoming DB funding code in a recent article for Pensions Age Magazine.

“The upcoming DB funding code will provide a framework whereby trustees can formally define a long-term objective for the scheme, whilst ensuring the scheme’s investment strategy is appropriate for achieving this over an appropriate time horizon.

In practice, we expect trustees will be looking to deploy more sophisticated strategies, such as equity downside protection, to allow them to continue to allocate to growth assets without excessively exposing the scheme to a worsened funding position during market crises.”
