Our leadership team are all highly respected practicing actuaries and lawyers, who have entered the trustee world in the prime of our working lives to help members, co trustees and sponsors by improving efficiency and helping them navigate the more difficult and unusual.
All professional trustees claim that they ‘are experienced and can reduce risk.’ The reality is however that most typically end up adding to and not subtracting from the complexity and cost. At 20-20 Trustees, we actively look to avoid being an unwelcome drain on the Scheme’s resources. We don’t want to sit in trustee meetings listening to advisers speak about basic governance points. We will only look to become involved where we truly believe we can add value and reduce overall costs.
The team at 2020 Trustees have demonstrated time and time again that our presence improves efficiency, drives down cost and reduces risk. We are happy to work on fixed projects and on a performance related remuneration basis. More than this though, we have saved businesses that would otherwise have gone bust, and have helped members improve their entitlements.
At 20-20 Trustees, we go beyond just being compliant and acting in the best interest of the members. Pension schemes are faced with complex and significant challenges. At 20-20 Trustees, we pro-actively manage all those involved in running schemes to extract maximum value for the members.
We challenge advisers to focus on key issues. We negotiate with sponsors robustly and commercially. We fight for members to receive value for money and be well represented. 20-20 Trustees have a national reputation for identifying solutions and fixing complex situations, particularly in distressed cases. This experience and approach transcends across to all of our trusteeship appointments.
Our representatives come largely from the highly regarded actuarial profession, with its reputation for rigorous analysis, clarity of thought and sense of proportion and fairness. Our financial acumen and long term outlook gives us a significant advantage over our competitor trustee firms. In short, 20-20 Trustees offer a refreshingly dynamic approach to pension scheme trusteeship.
