We believe that governing a DC arrangement successfully requires a certain approach and attitude and so our first rule in relation to any DC arrangement is ‘put yourself in the members’ shoes’ – What do they really want? What do they actually understand?
Whatever the type of arrangement, we can bring our extensive knowledge and experience of DC arrangements to help either with overall governance strategy or as an independent member of the board/committee.
Trust based schemes
The requirements for governance for trust based schemes has increased in both content and formality over the last few years. Our experience in working with some of the largest and most complex DC schemes in the UK means that we can advise you of an appropriate strategy for dealing with these requirements. We can:
- Provide you with an independent second opinion on any advice you may have received from your existing advisers.
- Sit as a co-opted member of a trustee sub-committee e.g. administration, communication or investment sub-committees.
- Join the trustee board as a fully independent, experienced and qualified trustee.
