Supporting Best Practice

At BESTrustees, we believe it is important to maintain the highest professional standards and to assist our clients in the running of their pension schemes.

Working With Industry Bodies

BESTrustees is an active member of the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) and of The Association of Corporate Trustees (TACT). Among our Directors and Trustee Executives we have a number of past Chairs of the National Association of Pension Funds now known as the Pensions and Lifetimes Savings Association (PLSA)

BESTrustees was one of the founding members of the Association of Professional Pension Trustees Ltd (APPT) and helped to develop its code of practice. We were the only firm of independent trustees to enrol all Trustee Executives and Directors as members of the APPT in its first year.

As a founder member of the APPT, we support its code of conduct and adhere to its standards. In addition, much of our business is spent dealing with very large public companies that frequently have their own standards, to which we adhere.

We are also very experienced in dealing with the Pensions Regulator and BESTrustees appears on the Pensions Regulator's Trustee Register.

Industry Education

While we do not consider it appropriate for us to offer commercial trustee training courses, we are happy to advise on the suitability of the training available and to provide speakers for clients' training sessions. We frequently provide speakers for pension and investment seminars and conferences and contribute articles to industry publications.
