Key Considerations Facing Modern Default Strategies

At AB, we believe that understanding the challenges facing DC schemes is imperative to bettering member outcomes.

Technically Complex; Practically Effortless

Our suite of DC pension solutions and single-fund strategies is the result of years of in-depth research, drawing on the resources and experience of our global DC team.

Our Approach

Our investment philosophy centres on client outcomes. The design of our approach means we can continually update our investment strategy as the needs of pension-scheme members are constantly evolving. Traditional lifestyle strategies struggle to do this in a time and cost-effective manner. The success of our approach is demonstrated by the sustained strength of our investment performance and our very high levels of client retention.

Past performance does not guarantee future results.
