Update regarding the Russia-Ukraine conflict

01 June 2022

The events in Ukraine are clearly very troubling.

Outside of the significant issues affecting the people in the area, we appreciate that you may also be concerned about reports on market turbulence as a result of the Russia-Ukraine conflict and how this might affect the value of your pension account. Although there have been some ups and downs over the last few months your pension account and the underlying investments continue to be managed as normal.

The Trustee of the Atlas Master Trust, with its advisers, believes that the best way to manage the risks of unexpected events such as this is to be invested across the world in a diverse range of assets. As a result only a very small proportion of the Trust’s funds are invested in Russia.

Pension saving is all about investing over the long term and so it’s important not to react to short term market movements. Further information about investing can be found in your investment guide which can be found in the employer-specific section of the documents library.
