DC Pensions


Atlas: The considered choice of master trusts. Atlas is the trustee-led Master Trust representing the considered choice for employers who want their employees to have the financial futures they choose. Everything we do is for our members, giving them control and the confidence that their hard-earned money and their best interests are being looked after by an independent, proactive board of trustees. With an open structure to partner with the right practitioners, Atlas is supported by the people experts Capita, daily administrators of British life and the investment expertise of Schroders. Together, we ensure that no member retires on an income that’s a surprise to them.


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.
