Defined Benefit

The defined benefit investment fund holds assets for employers whose employees are entitled to a specified benefit on retirement, regardless of investment outcomes.

Invest mainly in shares and property, which are expected to deliver higher returns over the long term. Invest the balance in more stable assets like fixed interest securities.
