Our people are our strength. We aim to attract and retain the best.

We recognise that the choice of professional trustee is often based on background and cultural fit. We have a diverse team with individuals with different personalities, from a range of backgrounds. So we have someone who can fit into any client relationship.

Our client directors are all committed governance professionals, each with recognised professional qualifications and decades of experience gained in the legal, actuarial, pension consultancy or administration arenas.

We work as a team on all our appointments, with Client Directors supported by a team of experienced managers and administrators. This ensures that work is carried out at the appropriate level and as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
