The PPI is an INDEPENDENT educational, not-for profit research institute. We undertake rigorous research from a neutral, long-term perspective

The DC Future Book

in association with Columbia Threadneedle Investments

This award winning annual publication sets out available data on the Defined Contribution landscape alongside commentary, analysis and projections for future trends. 

Since its launch in 2015, the DC Future Book has become an invaluable source of DC thought leadership. As well as tracking changes and trends in DC data over time, each year The Future Book also puts a spotlight on an area of particular interest within the DC landscape including thought pieces from industry and academic professionals.

Each year the PPI undertake the DC Asset Allocation Survey. The DC Asset Allocation Survey, the largest of its kind, collects data on size, charges and asset allocation across the DC universe. Data from the survey is presented (anonymously) in the DC Future Book. The data gathered from this survey is a critical component in developing our understanding of the DC landscape. As far as we are aware this is the only survey of this magnitude conducted in this area. The data supplied allows us to better understand not only the current DC landscape, but also what the future trends might look like and areas where greater support may be needed to improve the future of this landscape.

This year and previous years reports are listed below.
