Trustee Polarities

Our Trustee Polarities model has been designed to drive reflection, discussion and change in trustee meetings in order to enable trustees to achieve their full potential through good governance. We believe setting the right ‘tone from the top’ is critical in determining success.

Our model has been designed having regard to the UK Pensions Regulator guidance on governance and current thinking on board effectiveness. It draws on ideas from polarity management1. It provides a thorough review of trustee effectiveness and highlights areas for change. Even highly successful trustee bodies can enhance their performance and are amongst those most likely to be keen to do so. Effective trustee bodies are continually striving for improvements in governance as much as in all other parts of scheme success.
