- Why appoint a professional trustee
- Adding value
Since their appointment across four defined benefit schemes in November 2010, PTL have provided a consistent, pragmatic and professional approach to the complexities of each scheme. Through PTL we have access to a wealth of experience which, for example, was especially invaluable when giving guidance relating to the legalities surrounding the CPI/RPI changes.
Group Company Secretary, VolkerWessels UK Limited
Since he was appointed, Richard Butcher has helped us to adopt a strategic and structural approach to the governance of our scheme. He wants to help the Trustees and the Company to achieve their aim of securing the members’ benefits.
Chairman of the Trustees, The Littlejohn Frazer Retirement Benefits Scheme
PTL was recommended to us and contact was quickly and easily established. It was apparent from our first contact with Steve Carrodus that he would provide the type of service we were seeking. Steve has made himself readily available and provided timely and practical advice. I would have no hesitation recommending his services and by association those of PTL.
PTL brings invaluable professional knowledge and experience to the group, helping us to remain focused and operating in a disciplined manner in accordance with our responsibilities as trustees.
Trustee, Hertz Pension Plan
We appointed Richard Butcher as Independent Chair of the Hertz Pension Plan trustees in 2009. Richard’s knowledge, ability to communicate and build long-lasting relationships is superb. I have no hesitation in recommending Richard to other organisations seeking pragmatic, practical advice on pension matters.
