Insider Business Club: Solving the Pensions Crisis

Can trustees and finance directors work together?

The global credit crisis and the advent of fair value accounting have
combined to thrust pension matters back into the in-trays of most finance
directors. All this, coupled with regulatory change, has put a strain on
relations between the trustees of final salary pension schemes and the
sponsoring employers of these schemes.

Of course, the interests of pension fund sponsors and trustees have often
been at odds. But if pensions risk is to be managed at the corporate level,
trustees and finance directors need to find common ground and work together.

Our experts deal with these and other issues – and answer questions on one of
the most pressing financial problems around.
