We are BESTrustees

BESTrustees has provided independent occupational pension scheme trusteeship for over 30 years.

We specialise exclusively in trusteeship plus associated scheme secretarial and governance services. That’s it. We don’t offer anything else and we won’t try to sell you other services. This distinguishes us from other firms in the pensions market.

Today’s pensions market is dynamic. You need an increasingly broad skill set to manage a modern pension scheme. Some of those skills, such as navigating buy-ins and risk transfers, may be missing from your existing trustee board.

BESTrustees provides you with the necessary experience and knowledge to manage the challenges of running your pension scheme successfully – with flexible delivery to suit your needs. We offer experienced, independent trustees free from conflicts of interest with no other services to sell.

How we help pension schemes

At BESTrustees, our focus is pension trusteeship plus related services like secretarial or governance, but trusteeship comes in different forms.

In our work with pension schemes, we may act as co-trustee, chair of trustees and sole trustee.

We work with defined benefit schemes, defined contribution schemes, hybrid schemes, master trusts and independent governance committees. Our clients include schemes of all sizes and complexity levels in all parts of the country. All scheme work is done by an accredited professional trustee, with years of pensions experience who is there to help you. Work is never passed on to junior staff.

In all our roles, we work independently of any advisory firm or third party. This means we can provide unbiased advice free from any conflicts of interest hold advisers to account and control their costs in a way that our competitors cannot. No other professional pensions trustee firm offers that independence.

Sole Trustee Guide

We have created a short guide to Sole Trusteeship addressing common questions, such as:

  • Why are UK occupational pension schemes increasingly moving to a ‘sole trustee’ solution to help improve governance and operational effectiveness?
  • What factors are helping drive these decisions?
  • How might your pension scheme benefit either now or in the near future?
