Pensions secretarial services

With the increasing amount of regulation a UK pension scheme must comply with, the role of a pension trustee secretary has become extremely important.


We help pension trustees run their scheme efficiently by providing a dedicated, experienced resource to:

  • support and guide them
  • implement their strategies
  • ensure compliance and achieve good governance
  • manage pension scheme budgets and advisers

This enables trustees to use their valuable time to concentrate on important strategic issues, whilst feeling confident their pension scheme is well managed.

What makes a good trustee secretary?

With diverse legal and compliance requirements, performing the role of secretary to a trust-based pension scheme requires:

  • excellent organisational and project management skills
  • the ability to communicate effectively and diplomatically with many different parties, including pension trustees, scheme members and professional advisers
  • excellent working knowledge of pensions legal and regulatory compliance requirements
  • the ability to think strategically
  • proficiency in the use of technology

Finding this range of skills and abilities in-house is becoming harder. Combine this with the increasing importance of having an independent pension secretary who can help recognise and manage potential conflicts of interest, it’s no surprise many employers and pension trustees are now looking for an outsourced pension scheme secretary.
