Testimonials

For more than three decades, we have provided bespoke trusteeship services to pensions plans of all types, large and small. Our expertise has helped trustees understand the issues they face and, to date, our independent support has benefitted more than 100,000 members, collectively. You can read a selection of our trustee feedback below.

At a difficult financial time the employer appointed Philip as trustee to help the other pension scheme trustees through the decision making process they were being asked to consider. The existing trustees were sceptical of this sort of help. It soon became apparent that Philip was genuinely acting as an equal trustee, just like us, and bringing with him his legal training and experience, just as we bring our own training and experience, for the benefit of the pension scheme and its members. Realising that his concern was, like us, to act in the interest of all the members and not the interests of the employer, he provided and we were able to use, and tap into, this knowledge and experience for a better outcome for the members than might otherwise have been possible. This help and assistance was provided not as a lawyer but as a colleague with legal training who was prepared to work with us, to learn with us, and to listen and respond, as an equal, in helping the trustee board as whole decide the best way forward. Open minded, fair, and truly independent of the employer, Philip helped us achieve the best of the possible outcomes in very difficult circumstances. We still have a sponsoring employer. Thank you Philip for adding value, for being genuinely independent, and for your professionalism.

Trustee Chairman - Anonymous

The Trustees of the Forth Ports Group Pension Scheme have used The Trustee Corporation Limited as its Independent Chairperson now for 5 years. In that time the Trustees and the Company have enjoyed a very open, constructive and positive relationship and have always found the Corporation to be not only very knowledgeable in our field but also pro-active in its thinking and always looking for pragmatic ways of dealing with the growing challenges faced by Trustees. We would have no hesitation in putting The Trustee Corporation Limited forward as an Independent Trustee.

Drew McManus - Forth Ports Limited

We have now been working with Ian Forrest and his team at The Trustee Corporation for several years. This has included a period of significant upheaval in the financial markets, with some potentially significant implications for our pension schemes, but our working relationship has always been constructive and collaborative. We have implemented some innovative ideas together which mean that our schemes are in good health and Ian and his team take much of the credit for the way in which they have worked with the wider Trustee group, advisers and the Company to deliver good financial solutions for the scheme members. I look forward to working with the team at The Trustee Corporation as we consolidate the progress we have made.

Richard Martin - Weetabix Limited

Ian is a very experienced Independent Chair of Trustees, with a wealth of pensions knowledge, and a very wide range of contacts. Ian is diplomatic and patient (a true gentleman), but always remains focussed on achieving objectives in a collaborative and straightforward manner. His expertise and personal approach as Chair means he is able to combine the need to support and guide other trustees, appreciate the employer’s perspective and ensure members’ interests remain paramount.
