Fiduciary Management for UK Pension Schemes

  • Share

Ultimately the decision rests with scheme trustees.

However, an interesting development is the desire of finance directors to work alongside trustees to select a fiduciary manager. With many schemes now closed to new members and some also to future accrual, sponsors are also keen to establish a more effective governance framework which can introduce expertise into the decision-making process, increase the speed of implementation and enable a more sophisticated investment strategy to be developed.

Consideration of fiduciary management can therefore be initiated by either scheme trustees or scheme sponsors.
