Why appoint an Independent Trustee

“Poor administration is not harmless or victimless. It can have a real impact. The cost to the scheme of correcting … issues, or dealing with complaints, can also eat away at members’ retirement pots.”

June Mulroy, Executive Director for DC, Governance and Administration,

The Pensions Regulator, 2011
