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.


With four decades of investment experience, Newton is one of the UK’s most prominent active managers of DC pension investments. We work closely with schemes and specialist DC consultants to ensure we fully understand the outcomes that members are looking for and are positioned to offer solutions that are tailored to meet these requirements.

We use bottom-up security selection tied with a thematic framework in seeking to meet the long-term investment objectives of our DC clients, and we embed environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations in our analysis of investment opportunities and risks.
