Responsible investing in your pension
Your pension has the power to drive positive global change. There’s around £71.3 billion invested in UK pensions that could be used to support environmental change or social causes.
By taking control and matching your pension investments to your principles, you can help create the kind of world you’d like to retire into.
Our beginners guide to responsible and ethical investing in your pension covers:
- How to find out where you’re currently invested
- 3 ways to ethically invest, including ESG investing
- How combining your old pensions could give you more responsibility and control
This isn’t personal advice. If you’re not sure about what’s right for you, take advice. Remember that investments can go down as well as up in value, so you could get back less than you put in. You can’t normally access money in a pension until age 55 (rising to 57 from 2028). Pension rules can change, and any benefits depend on your circumstances. Before transferring, check you won’t lose valuable benefits and whether your current provider will charge you exit fees.
