Abstract: We quantify the benefit of collectivised investment funds, in which the assets of members who die are shared among the survivors. For our model, with realistic parameter choices, an annuity or individual fund requires approximately 20\% more initial capital to provide as good an outcome as a collectivised investment fund. We demonstrate the importance of the new concept of pension adequacy in defining investor preferences and determining optimal fund management. We show how to manage heterogeneous funds of investors with diverse needs. Our framework can be applied to existing pension products, such as Collective Defined Contribution schemes.
