In addition to this, we have seen the introduction of a Lifetime ISA and independent governance committees; and a revised DC Code will come into force in July.
Yet, at the same time as all this change trustees continue to face the challenges of ongoing scheme management and funding – and are increasingly reliant on the support and expertise of their consultants, advisers and service providers to help meet their objectives.
But some are now questioning whether trustees are now too reliant on external help – and are perhaps delegating too much to third-party consultants and providers.
The theme of the AMNT’s Summer Conference – Do trustees delegate too much? – comes at a crucial time for UK pensions and I very much look forward to hearing the views of both AMNT members and speakers on this topic.
Founding Chair, the Transparency Task Force...
AMNT’s members are absolutely vital in helping to ensure pension schemes are well governed and can deliver value for money. I think the AMNT’s conference will be a great chance for me to explain the work of the Transparency Task Force, so much of which is being done for all types of scheme trustees including lay trustees, and how what we are doing is a “bullseye” hit on the issue of value for money. You’ll hear about the obstacles we need to overcome and how we’re doing just that, in a collaborative and consensus-based way.
Also, given all the regulatory-led and market-led changes taking place in the world of pensions right now I am absolutely convinced that the need for trustees to be right up-to-date has never been higher.
So this really is a must-attend event if you want to be confident of handling your fiduciary responsibilities correctly, for the benefit of your scheme’s members.
And I know the networking and social side of things will be great too – see you there!
