The Defined Contribution Investment Forum

Dedicated to promoting investment excellence in DC pensions.

Welcome to the DCIF

We’re a group of asset managers who believe that a well designed and diverse investment strategy has an important role in delivering a comfortable retirement for millions of DC savers.

A not-for-profit organisation, we commission and publish research which shines a spotlight on DC investment issues. We hope the people who determine DC pension schemes’ investment strategies will use it to inform their work.

We also arrange events. From virtual roundtables to in person gatherings, they’re a great way to learn more about DC investment issues and meet a like-minded community of trustees, pensions managers, investment consultants and more.

If you would like to come to our events or find out when we release a research paper, please register.
