The Trustee Guide is a user-friendly summary of the pensions law and regulatory framework within which trustees of occupational pension schemes in the UK operate. It is divided into eight sections covering the following topics:
- The legal and regulatory framework
- The trustee board and how it runs its affairs
- Trustee statutory duties
- Funding and investment
- Disputes, penalties and liabilities
- Major events
- The Pensions Regulator and the Pension Protection Fund
It is designed to be a useful background source and refresher for trustees and in-house pensions teams to put issues into context as they arise in relation to their pension scheme.
Please note that this edition reflects the law and regulatory framework as they stood in April 2016. It is not meant to be a substitute for legal advice, for which we would ask you to consult the person at Mayer Brown who normally advises you.
