Title: DC Investment Strategy in the ‘Age of Responsibility’

Date: Tuesday 14th July 2015, 8.30–10.00am

Venue: Austin Friars House, 2-6 Austin Friars, London EC2N 2HD


How can we apply investment insights from DB pensions to DC savings?

What might robust at-and-post retirement strategies look like?

Why is this new age of responsibility a game-changer for savers and the retirement industry?


The next Redington Teach In will examine one of the most critical times in a person’s life; the time we reach retirement. As the burden of financial responsibility has slipped off the backs of employers and fallen squarely onto the shoulders of the individual, those who are approaching their 55th birthday face uncertain times. In ‘The Age of Responsibility’ report, contributions from 14 thought leaders examine why this has happened, and what we can do to combat this imminent crisis.

Freddie Ewer will provide an overview of ‘The Age of Responsibility’ report, discussing what we can learn from its findings regarding the UK savings culture, the feedback we received and what the future could hold for DC scheme members.  Director of Investment Consulting, Patrick O’Sullivan, will then explore the ways investment strategy from DB schemes can be applied in the DC space, particularly for members that are at and post retirement.


In this teach in, Redington will cover:

  • Implications for savers and the industry from the new Age of Responsibility
  • How the personal advice gap could be bridged
  • Relative merits and drawbacks of annuities and drawdown
  • The danger of sequencing risk and how to protect against it
  • Application of DB investment insights to address members’ needs
