The Fund’s investments are divided between four separate portfolios, these being the Active Member and Deferred Pensioner Portfolio, the Pre-Retirement Switch Portfolio – designed to preserve members capital as they approach retirement. The portfolio is therefore conservative by nature, focusing on providing steady growth with minimal risk. The With-Profit Pensioner Portfolio  - a fairly conservative portfolio that preserves pensioners’ capital while generating steady return. The Without-Profit (Non-Profit) Pensioner Portfolio – incorporates an annual growth figure as agreed with the member and risk does not lie with the member.
