This webinar is sponsored and delivered by:

With the growing focus on good governance, how do trustees and consultants meet best practice and ensure good outcomes for pension beneficiaries? What is great governance and what is being missed?

The Pensions Regulator provides guidance on best practice around governance, focused on people, structure and processes, all of which bring their challenges. Our discussion looks at the ‘governance gap’ – areas that trustees and their advisors should give thought to that currently may not be fully addressed – and we go ‘under the bonnet’ to identify how using new technology can improve governance outcomes. 

What you'll learn

  • A high level overview of the key elements of pension scheme governance
  • What trustees and their consultants might be missing – what to look for
  • How new technology can improve governance outcomes and add value to end investors

Many trustees seek clarity on what fiduciary management actually entails, and if it is appropriate for their specific scheme.  Appointing a fiduciary manager is essentially a governance decision, by which the execution of the trustees’ investment strategy is implemented by a specialist fiduciary partner. In this webinar Paul Wharton from Russell Investments and Peter Daniels from Barnett Waddingham discuss the key considerations for trustees to ensure they make the right governance choice.  They also discuss the role of an impartial, third-party evaluator in providing helpful and constructive input to the trustees at this critical juncture in a scheme’s life.  

What you'll learn

  • The governance process and regulation applied to trustees
  • Who the appropriate parties are to implement an investment strategy
  • Where the responsibilities of trustees, advisers and fiduciary managers begin and end
