How do defined contribution pensions grow?
A Defined Contribution pension simply put, is a long-term savings account and its growth is directly linked to the amount of funds (contributions) saved, the investment performance of the fund, minus the fees taken by the pension provider. The value of your pension pot can go up and down depending on these investments and fees taken, so it is worth keeping a close eye on how your DC pension fund is performing.
