Inder Dhingra Chair of Aviva Independent Governance Committee publishes Committees first annual report
19 April 2016
Inder Dhingra represents LawDeb Pensions Trustees as Chair of the Aviva Independent Governance Committee (IGC) – and in this capacity recently published the Committee’s first annual report.
The providers of workplace pensions were required by the Financial Conduct Authority to set up IGCs in April 2015 – with the aim of greater protection to scheme members by improving governance and helping ensure value for money. Annual reports of the work of IGCs must be published as part of the chairs’ remit.
In his role as Chair of the Aviva IGC, Inder accordingly published Aviva’s initial report, covering the period April to December 2015.
In addition to be being a member of the Aviva IGC, LawDeb Pension Trustees is also a member of the IGCs of:
- Fidelity (represented by David Felder)
- ReAssure – a Swiss Re subsidiary – (represented by Andrew Parker), and
- Virgin Money (represented by Antony Macwhinnie)
All of these providers have also published their annual reports:
Two of our IGC appointments also involve the appointment as trustee of the providers’ master trusts – so bringing together our expertise as independent trustee with our governance skills.
Commenting on the publication of these annual reports, Inder confirmed that the appointment of LawDeb Pension Trustees demonstrates the depth and breadth of our DC and governance experience.
Our work in DB arrangements tends to overshadow our strengths in the DC and governance arenas – and yet the schemes with which we are involved have billions of pounds of DC assets and our experience extends across a wide range of governance models.
