A professional independent co-trustee plays a crucial role in helping trustee boards navigate the complex challenges inherent in managing pension schemes.

Collaborating with fellow trustees, scheme advisers and employers, they strive to deliver positive outcomes for the scheme and its members.

Our co-trustees offer experience in a range of areas, including finance, investment management, covenant assessment and the law. We have worked with clients on every possible pension challenge. The strength of our individual and collective experience means a scheme can have confidence in our ability to support and guide the trustee board in any situation.

Our approach is always balanced and considered. We recognise the importance of aligning the interests of sponsors and schemes. Many of our scheme appointments start as co-trusteeships and move to chair of trustees roles and even sole trusteeships.

Chair of trustees

Chairing a pension scheme requires specialised skills and experience, and the chair is central to the scheme’s success.

More than half of the appointments in our portfolio are as chairs of trustees.  We serve schemes of all sizes and complexity levels from all industry sectors.

During their careers, our trustees have seen every sort of pensions scenario. We use that experience to lead schemes with confidence. A collaborative approach makes it easier to gain the support of fellow board members and make balanced decisions that affect their members.

Our 30 years of experience of selecting and working with scheme advisers means we always use them in the most cost-effective and efficient manner.
