DC Pensions


Atlas is the trustee-led Master Trust representing the considered choice for employers who want their people to have the financial futures they choose.

Atlas’ core belief is that no member should be surprised by their outcome, giving people control of their financial future. It gives them the reassurance that their best interests, and hard-earned money, are being proactively looked after by a board of independent trustees.

Atlas’ open structure drives quality; supported by people-experts Capita, daily administrators of British life and the investment expertise of Schroders.

Together, we create financial futures from working lives so our members are the masters of the life they choose.
