The CMA Orders require trustee boards of pension schemes to set clear strategic objectives by 10th December 2019. If this is not done the trustees cannot take advice from their investment adviser. Trustees need to act now – time is running out!
IC Select, the fiduciary management specialists, have appointed pension veteran John Paterson as director following rapid growth in demand for its services. John, who joins from JLT Group a leading investment and actuarial consultancy, brings over 30 years’ experience of actuarial work, investment strategy and interaction with trustee boards. His technical and investment experience adds to the 100 years of investment and pension fund experience possessed by IC Select’s team. The hire follows a surge in demand for independent advice following the Competition and Markets Authority Review (CMA Review) into investment consultants and fiduciary managers.
