Understanding Master Trusts with the Society of Pensions Professionals

Understanding Master Trusts with the Society of Pensions Professionals

BusinessTV No Comments

Recently, Martin Willis of the Society of Pension Professionals, (SPP), kindly shared some of his time with BusinessTV to help us all better understand Master Trusts.

Master Trusts have been around for some time now but it’s only since auto-enrollment that they’ve really taken off. Potentially, they can be used to outsource almost all of the administrative, governance and regulatory burdens that come with running your pension scheme. If the fit is right they can also offer strong economies of scale and high levels of investment expertise.

In this conversation we asked Martin some basic questions that we felt most of you would probably have, especially if you’ve not heard of these vehicles before.

We learnt that Master Trusts are not necessarily perfect for all types of schemes, or scheme cultures, but for many they are well worth a look.

We shall be publishing this interview shortly, so please look out for it as we’re certain you’ll find it useful.
