LONDON (13 February 2018) – Aon, the leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement and health solutions, has issued ‘Putting DC Members Front and Centre; refocusing DC investment’. This new paper, which is the first in a series of three, looks at defined contribution schemes’ processes, and challenges them to examine what they are really trying to achieve for members – with particular attention on their equity investments.
Chris Inman, head of DC investment advisory at Aon, said:
“There is a clear need for DC schemes to check their investment objectives and to refocus on members – and all their unique and evolving needs - as well as the risks they are exposed to.
"We are advocating to schemes a three tier approach of ‘Discover, Develop and Deliver’ in order that they can reach a clearer view of their members’ investment requirements. This paper’s main focus is on the Discover phase – putting the spotlight on equities – and we hope it will offer some valuable guidance to all those grappling with the tasks of improving member outcomes.”
