European DC Investment Strategist

  • With plans for the introduction of auto-enrolment in Ireland, it is crucial that DC schemes have well-designed default investment strategies that give members confidence.
  • Periods of heightened global market volatility, such as those experienced recently, reinforce the importance of managing investment market risk.
  • Large falls in financial markets can seriously knock the confidence of DC savers. It is therefore critical that default strategies seek to reduce losses.
  • Using a default with built-in volatility management, such as State Street Global Advisors’ Timewise Target Retirement Funds, can help reduce losses in market downturns.
