Pensions - Articles - National Pension Trust apply for master trust authorisation

 The National Pension Trust submits application for master trust authorisation and appoints two additional trustees
 Over the last few months the National Pension Trust team and trustees have been highly focussed on delivering a robust application for authorisation. We have worked closely with the Regulator to make sure our application covered all the areas required and remain fully supportive of the authorisation process to ensure high standards within the master trust market.
 At the same time as completing the application exercise, we are delighted to have secured two additional independent professional trustees to the board of trustees for the National Pension Trust. The appointment of Gurmukh Hayre, of Hayre Trustee Services Limited, and Gerald Wellesley, of Punter Southall Governance Services Limited, increases the size of the board from three to five trustees and broadens the skills, knowledge and experience of the board.
 Ian Davies, National Pension Trust Chair of Trustees, says: “Gurmukh and Gerald bring a wealth of experience of the DC and financial market place, particularly in relation to investment design and member engagement. Their skills and knowledge enhances and broadens the expertise of the board, to deliver strong governance to protect and support members of the Trust. We believe our authorisation application to be compelling.”
 Dave Hodges, Head of DC and National Pension Trust at XPS Pensions Group, says: “The National Pension Trust is fully committed to providing the highest standards in DC workplace pension solutions. With Gurmukh and Gerald joining the trustee board at the same time as our application for master trust authorisation, we believe this clearly demonstrates our commitment and desire to be a leading master trust provider of choice post authorisation.”
