Take a look at recent insight from the team.
What is Entrust?
Entrust is a leading independent professional trustee company which helps organisations run their pension schemes effectively.
We take the hassle out of running a pension scheme, providing reassurance that the scheme is being run professionally.
We have acted as trustee to over 100 occupational pension schemes for organisations across the globe providing a friendly, collaborative approach to pension trusteeship. Our team has been at the forefront of developments in pensions over the past 25 years, achieving positive outcomes for more than 20,000 members.
We are often appointed as a trustee to provide leadership and guidance to a trustee board. We are also regularly appointed as the sole trustee of a scheme where an organisation is looking to outsource the governance of its pension scheme.
How Entrust helps schemes
Entrust provides independent trustee services, helping companies, charities and other organisations to manage their occupational pension schemes.
Entrust can act as a sole trustee or we can join a panel of co-trustees. Our role is to provide leadership and guidance to give pension scheme trustees the information they need to better understand their duties.
Through strong scheme governance, we are able to reduce the administrative burden and manage the risks associated with running a pension scheme.
We step in when companies face issues finding people to act as trustee, and, where conflicts arise, we also help to resolve these. In most cases, we also reduce the amount of company management time needed to look after the scheme.
We make decisions on everything that happens within a scheme, including:
- Deciding how the scheme’s assets are to be invested
- Deciding how the scheme should be funded in terms of company and member contributions
- Ensuring members receive their pensions correctly
- Ensuring that the scheme complies with all laws applicable to occupational pension schemes
- Reporting on the scheme to the Pensions Regulator and HMRC
We do this collaboratively, consulting with employers on all significant decisions.
