Addressing common concerns

As a trustee, you might worry that hiring a fiduciary manager will have a negative impact on the way you run your business. Let's address the three most common concerns:

I’ll be handing over all control to you.

  • Our fiduciary management services are structured so that you still determine the investment strategy and guidelines – you only delegate what you wish to.
  • You get appropriate reporting to help you manage your funding level, e.g. we’ll report aggregate exposures and risks across the total portfolio and we’ll give you timely, easy access to total portfolio positions and risks.

Using a fiduciary management will cost me more.

  • A like-for-like comparison typically results in a cost saving.
  • There are additional benefits to your pension scheme. You’ll get added value from improved funding and reduced funding volatility, and you will achieve a better risk/return result.

I’ll be making an irreversible decision.

  • You retain ownership of assets and control over appointment, including setting any notice period
  • Any strategy and guidelines changes can be implemented efficiently
