Pensions Trustee

Our dedicated team of professional trustees can help shape your pensions strategy, establish productive working relationships and make your scheme work more effectively.

Reassure pension scheme members and stakeholders their scheme is in safe hands: a professional independent trustee will help you navigate the ever-changing financial and regulatory environment, manage risk and distil complexity into decisive action.

Impartiality, credibility and focus: the right trustee makes managing assets, organisations and people much easier. An independent trustee will take as much responsibility as required, from knowledge sharing and oversight to chair roles and sole corporate trusteeship.

He or she will demonstrate commercial acumen when dealing with sponsors, fill in any knowledge gaps, and share insights and best practice regarding working with advisers including legal, investment, actuarial and administration providers.

Our Defined Contribution Credentials
