Professional Independent Pension Trustees

Independent Pension Trustee Services

Pi Pension Trustees is part of the Pi Partnership Group, a company providing independent trustee services that provide specialist support to employers and pension trustee boards. Our professional independent trustees can offer specialist support to help trustee boards make informed decisions and deliver robust governance.

As members of the Association of Professional Pension Trustees (APPT), we are fully supportive of the new accreditation policy promoted by the Pension Regulator and professional bodies.

Pi Pension Trustees builds strong and reliable relationships, in order to encourage collaborative and fruitful relationships between the business, board members and the independent trustee company.

Our independent pension trustees will work closely with trustee boards, the employer and advisers to agree and deliver an effective strategic business plan to meet the pension scheme objectives. We provide comprehensive pension services that are designed to be cost-effective and deliver robust trustee governance

Whether you are looking to appoint independent pension trustees as part of your trustee board or as a Sole Trustee, we will assign an experienced specialist to meet all of your pension scheme requirements. 

Accredited Independent Pension Trustee Services

The Pension Regulator rightly expects the highest standards from professional trustees. The definition is designed to apply to individuals, whether or not incorporated, who act as trustees in a business capacity, usually for one or more unrelated pension schemes. The term independent trustee can also apply to trustees who are not professional trustees. For example, it is possible for a lay trustee to be an independent trustee. 

The Pension Regulator expects professional trustees to gain accreditation to prove that they meet the required standards; we have been working closely as part of the APPT to develop this accreditation process.

Our team can advise you on how a professional trustee can help meet your pension scheme needs. Please contact our experts on 020 8879 6500 or

Discover how Pi Pension Trustees can take the stress out of your organisation’s pension trusteeship needs. We combine the skills of our trustees and wider pension consultancy team to meet our clients’ needs. We always adopt an open, collaborative approach and shared strategic objectives by establishing effective working relationships with employers, regulators and advisers.

Chair of Trustee

The role of Chair of Trustee is pivotal to the operational success of a trustee board and is essential to delivering good pension scheme governance. Our pension trustees act as Chair to a number of pension schemes where we provide leadership and expertise.

Sole Trustee

A sole trustee bears exactly the same fiduciary duties as a trustee board and can enable a pension scheme to be run more efficiently, whilst maintaining robust governance processes. Discover the benefits of having a professional sole trustee, including board succession management, ensuring your pension scheme is regulation-compliant, delivering cost efficiencies and specialist technical knowledge.

Interim Pension Trustee Services

For schemes that do not require the ongoing support of an independent trustee company, our pension trustees can help support your trustee board on an interim basis through complex situations such as company restructure, valuations or detailed regulatory discussions.

Charity and Non-Pension Trusteeship

With an increased demand for professional trustees within the wider non-pension arena, we can provide non-pension and charity trustees to a range of organisations where the benefits of strategic leadership, good governance and other elements are more and more important.

Why Appoint an Independent Trustee?

Pension scheme governance is becoming increasingly complex which is why pension schemes and companies require support with scheme management, trustee efficiency and technical knowledge. A professional independent pension trustee can support trustee boards with specialist pension expertise, engage the scheme’s advisers to manage budgets effectively, support informed decision making and add value to negotiations.
