What is a default fund?

A default fund is the fund that an employer or scheme trustee has chosen for scheme members who don't make an active fund choice. Any members who don't choose a fund will automatically be put into this fund. It's usually a lifestyle fund.

For employers who prefer to let Aegon choose the default for them, we offer the Aegon Default Equity and Bond Lifestyle fund (PDF - 181kb)(Opens new window) for ARC investors, the GPP Default (PDF - 183kb)(Opens new window) for Group Pension Plan investors, and the Stakeholder Default (PDF - 183kb)(Opens new window) for Stakeholder pension investors.
