Pace Complete’s assets are invested with the aim of building up sufficient investment returns to meet the benefits promised to members. The Pace Trustees, with the help of investment advisers, choose where to invest the assets and draw up a Statement of Investment Principles (SIP) which outlines Pace Complete’s investment strategy. The SIP is reviewed annually and updated at least every three years and after an actuarial valuation.
The Trustees are in the process of implementing some changes to Pace Complete's investments. The Trustees believe that the changes will allow them to meet their investment objectives as set out in the SIP.
The strategy being implemented will target more ‘liability-matching’ assets (including government and company bonds), which are less risky than ‘growth’ assets (such as company shares and property) and are expecting to help to stabilise Pace Complete’s funding position.
