Management Of Your Company Pension

Company Pensions Scheme’s (also known as Occupational Pension Scheme’s or Group Pensions) are generally designed so that you manage the pension on your own. As a result the vast majority of pension savers get little or no assistance apart from receiving a scheme explanatory booklet from their employer.

Many people who manage their own pension take an inappropriate level of risk – sometimes to much risk and sometimes too little. This is unfortunate because if you don’t manage your investment it costs you. Your eventual pension will be accrued from four sources;

  • Your contributions
  • Your employers contributions (usually the case in a company scheme)
  • Tax relief
  • Investment growth

If you don’t maximise growth (within acceptable risk parameters), then for a given level of pension in retirement you have to contribute more.

The first stage to managing risk is to determine how much risk you need to take to achieve your objectives. This, and assessment of your attitude to risk, capacity for loss and risk tolerance informs assets allocation. As Specialist Investment Advisers we can help with this.
