Andrew Warwick-Thompson, Chair of the Scottish Widows Master Trust, said: “There’s a
growing desire among pension scheme members for their retirement savings to be invested
responsibly on their behalf. In response, we have embedded responsible investment principles into our default investment strategy. Now we are going further by creating the opportunity for our members to express their preference for responsible investing via our self-select range. Responsible investing is at the heart of the Trustees’ commitment to helping our members to achieve good retirement outcomes and value for money.”
