Unlike money held on deposit, the value of investments, and any income you take from them, can fall as well as rise, is not guaranteed and you may get back less than invested. Each fund you invest in will have specific risks of its own that are dependent on the types of assets it invests in. The main asset types are shares (equities), bonds (corporate and government), commercial property and cash. Details of the risks for each fund are held in the fund information available before you invest.
Although there is no fixed term, because the value of an investment can fall as well as rise you should be prepared to hold an investment for at least five years, ideally longer. Any money invested in a pension plan cannot be accessed before you start to take benefits from your plan. Currently the earliest you can take benefits from a pension plan is generally age 55.
