Atlas Master Trust has named Schroders as its defined contribution (DC) default fund investment manager.

Schroders will design and manage multi-asset funds for the workplace pensions provider.

The UK master trust market is set to be worth £30bn by 2025, The Pensions Regulator estimates, thanks to auto-enrolment. Master trusts are working to improve their offering to win this new business and hiring Schroders is part of Atlas’ growth strategy.

Atlas Master Trust chair Alan Whalley said the trustees intend to strengthen the trust’s investment strategy and governance around Schroders global pedigree.

“It is crucial that the trustees of any master trust continually review their strategy and proactively seek to improve member outcomes,” he said.

Whalley added that the goal to make Atlas the master trust of choice is another reason why Schroders was selected.

Schroders’ head of UK institutional DC, Tim Horne, is impressed with Atlas’ rapid grown since it was founded in 2015.

“The UK’s master trust market is poised for substantial growth and Schroders is well-placed to bring investment excellence to Atlas members,” he added.
