The core fund range

Making your choice easier

What is the core fund range?

BT has worked with their advisers to come up with a small range of investment options it thinks are appropriate if you don't want to invest in the low-involvement option. To help make your life easier, a core range of funds have been selected which are believed to be appropriate for pension plan investments.

Remember, BT isn’t recommending that the options in the core fund range are suitable for everyone.

Any choices you make now aren’t set in stone. You're in control and you can change your investments if you want - so you’re not committing yourself forever.

If you’re not sure which options are right for you, you should get help from a financial adviser.

Things to be aware of

  • Before you choose an investment option, make sure you understand its aims and risks
  • As with any investment, the value can go down as well as up, and may be worth less than what was paid in

BT Share Pension Fund

The BT Share Pension Fund will also be available to members alongside the core fund range and full range of funds.
