5 Series Webinar: five top tips for appointing a professional trustee for your pension scheme

April 11, 2018

Hosted by Pensions Partner, Suresh Bhatt

Professional Trustees have been an established part of the pensions industry for a number of decades now. However, the growth in the number of individuals and companies acting as Professional Trustees has been particularly significant over the last 15 years or so.

It’s no surprise that this has coincided with a substantial increase in the legislative and regulatory burden being placed on non-Professional Trustees and the Pension Regulator’s focus on raising trusteeship standards.

But if you are not a pensions expert and you want a Professional Trustee, how do you go about appointing the best one for your scheme?

In this webinar, Pension Scheme expert, Suresh Bhatt shares key points you may want to consider when appointing a Professional Trustee for your pension scheme:

  1. Understanding why you want a Professional Trustee;
  2. Understanding the relevant governing provisions of your scheme;
  3. Establishing a robust appointment process;
  4. Selecting the best candidate;
  5. Ensuring Professional Trustee accountability.
