Whether it’s complying with 21st century Trusteeship requirements, regulatory codes and rules, or support with oversight or governance committees, trustees and employers need to seek ways to run their scheme well and achieve better outcomes for their members.
We can support your DC governance body (trustees or governance committee) to deliver best-in-class governance. Our bespoke service ensures a proportionate but high-quality approach is taken to suit your particular needs.
In the latest edition of our Master Trust Insights, we assess the impact of Master Trust default fund performance on member outcomes.
This year's report provides a forward-looking assessment by examining how recent market events and fund performance have impacted the future retirement incomes of different members. In simple terms, and from the perspective of the majority of Master Trust members, who invest in the default fund, we answer the question: “What does this mean for me?”
We appointed Hymans Robertson as our DC governance adviser earlier this year as we felt their approach was fresh and different to others that we met. Since their appointment, they have helped us to take a step back and consider what we are aiming to achieve with the plan and what factors are likely to have the biggest impact on our members’ outcomes. This has allowed us to focus our time and efforts in the right areas and to tackle our key priorities in terms of driving the plan forward.
