While you are a member of the Scheme, the contributions are invested in funds which aim to increase the value of your Retirement Account.
The Investment Manager will action the switch within approximately 2 working days - frequently within 24 hours. The Investment Manager will then confirm the completion to the Scheme Administrator within 2 days. Upon receipt of this confirmation the Scheme Administrator will amend your pension records to show your new investment position; this will also be reflected online at the Scheme website within 24 hours of this amendment, and you will receive confirmation of your switch by email shortly after.
Taking into account the administrative processes involved, a request to switch your unit holdings will usually take approximately one week to fully complete from the time you submit your switch request, to the date that you receive formal written confirmation of completion.
