Survey of Pension Schemes' Member Nominated Trustees Arrangements
Survey of Pension Schemes' Member Nominated Trustees Arrangements
Occupational Pensioners' Alliance
Oct 2008 United Kingdom Trustees, Scheme Issues & Trends, Regulatory Bodies - the Pensions Regulator, Corporate Governance
This survey by the Occupational Pensioners Alliance (OPA) reveals that many pension schemes have already met the Government recommendation of 50% or more Member Nominated Trustees (MNTs). However, 32% did not consider that the new arrangements for nominating and selecting MNTs were “fair, transparent and proportionate”. The report suggests that difficulty in recruiting MNTs could be addressed by utilising more recently retired members and also recommends that scheme governance could be improved.

Members demand fairer representation on trustee boards
Members demand fairer representation on trustee boards
Occupational Pensioners' Alliance
Sep 2007 United Kingdom Trustees, Industry Bodies (excl. Regulatory Bodies)
The Occupational Pensioners' Alliance has issued a report on the compliance status of trustee boards. It reveals that despite pension schemes having an overwhelming majority of non-active members, including 45% of members being retired, pensioner members only make up 11% of trustees. The survey also shows that many schemes will not be able to comply with the Pensions Regulator's Code of Practice on member-nominated trustees in the required time, with many employers relying on opt out arrangements to avoid meeting the deadline.
