The future of pension scheme trusteeship

RSM’s pensions team surveyed almost 200 trustees of UK pension schemes to understand how the role of today’s pension scheme trustee is changing. In a landscape of dealing with many conflicting pressure points, increasing regulation and funding concerns, there is no denying that the role of the pension scheme trustee is more challenging now than it has ever been.

But there is also plenty of cause for optimism for the sector. What with industry bodies collaborating more effectively, heightened awareness of fraud risks and a largely positive self-reflection from trustees on job satisfaction and scheme governance, the industry is heading in a new and transformational direction. Our industry-leading publication dissects what the biggest current issues for trustees are and considers where the future of trusteeship lies.

Is the work of trustees as we know it something that will continue on, or is the role in fact at a crossroads? Our research indicates those in the industry see the role continuing and evolving, but the future direction is far from clear
