Professional Trustee and Principal Officer Services

To minimize the risks associated with the growing number of legislative, compliance and governance issues involved, management boards of trustees have the option to appoint independent trustees or principal officers to assist the board to manage the affairs of the retirement fund. The independent official is typically someone with skills within the area of retirement fund management or other specialist fields.

Retirement Fund Governance and Regulatory Compliance

Good governance of retirement funds is of particular importance for the reason that the decisions and actions of trustees are key to member outcomes. In ensuring good governance, the management board of trustees are required to implement the recommendations in the Retirement Fund Governance Guidelines, 2010, issued by the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA).

FTS is able to assist management boards to develop appropriate governance strategy guidelines, risk management structures, code of conduct and other regulatory related policies to ensure retirement funds are able to comply with the appropriate governance standards, which are outlined in the Retirement Fund Governance Guidelines.
