The CBI Retirement Benefits Plan (‘the Plan’) is a defined benefit scheme that was available to CBI staff prior to being closed to all new accruals on 31st March 2012. The assets of the plan are managed by third-party investment managers and are held separately in trust.
The Trustee of the Plan is responsible for the investment of the Plan’s assets. As part of statutory legislation, the Trustee is required to produce a Statement of Investment Principles (‘SIP’) detailing their objectives and the parameters they work within. This statement has always been available to the members of the Plan on request and has now been made publicly available to help you understand the Trustee’s strategy for the pension scheme’s investments.
