Investment beliefs

These documents tell you more about how the Trustee thinks about investing the money put aside for your retirement, for both the Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution sections of the Scheme.

Statement of Investment Principles

The Statement of Investment Principles helps you understand the Trustee’s strategy for the Scheme’s investments. There are two documents here: one for the Defined Contribution section of the Scheme, and one for the Defined Benefit section of the Scheme.

Implementation Statement

The Implementation Statements tell you how the Trustee has followed the above Statement of Investment Principles in the year to 31 March 2023. Again, there are separate documents for the Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution sections of the Scheme.

Costs and Charges

To help current and former Partners (our members) understand costs and charges for the Defined Contribution section of the Scheme, the Trustee has produced a document called a governance statement. In this governance statement, on:

  • Pages 13 to 15 you’ll find details of the costs deducted during the year ended 31 March 2023 in percentage terms and in money terms for each investment fund.
  • In Appendix 3, you’ll find illustrations showing the effect of charges on the value of pension savings.

Climate-related risks and opportunities (TCFD report)

Regulations came into force in October 2021, which require pension schemes with assets valued at £5 billion or above to report on how they are managing climate-related risks and opportunities. The regulations followed the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

Each year, the Trustee needs to produce a report for the previous year to 31 March. The report sets out the Trustee's approach for the assessment, ongoing management and mitigation of climate-related risks and opportunities.
