Trustee Advice

The last thirty years have seen a constant increase in regulation, legislation and guidance relating to the role of the pension scheme trustees. At ARC Pensions Law, we believe that pension scheme trustees require more than simply having problems identified; they need clear, practical solutions and advice on how to navigate the complexities that touch all areas of the trustee’s role.


Our highly experienced team understands that trustees require the full range of defined benefit, defined contribution and hybrid schemes, whether large boards or sole appointments. Our advice is tailored to the individual needs of clients’ schemes. We assist with benefit queries, use of discretions, funding, administrative and investment issues that trustees deal with in the course of their duties. Our advisors can help to manage roles and responsibilities effectively, assisting in the development of strategies to ensure best practice in pension scheme management.
