This is the new edition of the definitive guide on pension trustees’ duties and obligations, brought fully to date. Crystal clear and jargon-free, it anticipates everything the trustee needs to know in a no-nonsense, practical manner. It is helpfully divided into three parts: Trusteeship in Law; Trusteeship in Practice; and The Bluffer’s Guide, an invaluable source of information.

This book focuses on what the rules mean in practice, teaches the trustee to anticipate problems and how to solve them and contains no legalese or jargon. Each chapter ends with a summary of points to remember and the book includes valuable case studies, check lists and addresses.
