United Pensions offers a choice of six different investment mixes, UN 1 through UN 6. These combine real assets/fixed-interest securities in the following proportions: 65%/35%, 50%/50% and 35%/65%. Clients can choose the active or passive variation of each investment mix.
Within the passive variations, the passive shares funds structures are based not only on market capitalisation, but also on a combination of 'smart passive' solutions, such as minimum volatility and fundamental indexation. This is designed to ensure a better risk-return ratio compared to market capitalisation-based investments.
United Pensions is a fiduciary solution. As well as the above activities, it benefits client by: giving strategic advice; performing the annual continuity analysis; performing a full ALM study once every three years; and reporting on their investments.
