The boring but important stuff
Help Yourself is a simple tool with a serious aim – to
help you think about your investment choices and
what suits you.
Based on your answers to the questions, it gives you some ideas about the investment option and funds you might want to consider. What it doesn't do is give financial advice or recommendations. It's too simple for that.
By using Help Yourself you accept its purpose and understand its limitations. If you want to know more about how Help Yourself works and what it does, click the terms and conditions button above.
Now we've got that out of the way, click the button below for your results.
- Your investment options: Members of the defined benefit (DB) section of the ITV Pension Scheme can invest their additional pension savings through a hands on or hands off approach. There are 4 hands off options (Focused (mainly pension), Focused (cash at retirement), Blended (mainly pension), Blended (cash at retirement)) to choose from, and 15 investment funds through the hands on approach.
- About Help Yourself: Based on your answers to 8 simple questions, Help Yourself will suggest whether the hands on or hands off approach might suit you, it also gives you some ideas about what option you might like to consider if you decide to invest through the hands off approach, and the types of assets you might like to consider if you decide to invest through hands on. These options and asset types are suggestions only based on your response to the questions.
- Help Yourself cannot take account of your personal circumstances; it asks a limited number of general questions and because of this you should not regard any of the information it provides as either financial advice or recommendations.
Neither the Trustee of the ITV Pension Scheme (ITV Pension Scheme Ltd, the “Trustee”), ITV plc, including all Participating Employers of the ITV Pension Scheme (together “ITV”), nor Towers Watson an independent firm of actuaries and consultants authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, the Trustee’s investment advisers, can be responsible for any decisions you make based on Help Yourself.
- Getting advice: You are responsible for carrying out your own investigations before deciding how to invest your additional pension savings; you should take impartial financial advice if you're not sure what to do or want specific advice about your own personal circumstances.
