Fiduciary Management

Fiduciary Management


  • Mercer Campaigns



One often-quoted constraint facing many UK pension schemes is that improvements in a scheme’s funding position are often not identified quickly enough to be appropriately capitalised on. Similarly, taking appropriate and timely action following deterioration in the financial health of a pension scheme is difficult due to the constraints of pension scheme meeting cycles and limited resources.

These time constraints and insufficient resources leave many trustees unable to take advantage of potential opportunities from short term (and often significant) market fluctuations. Fiduciary management overcomes these constraints by developing a governance framework which allows trustees to lock into market gains and protect against downside equity risk, while managing their scheme along a path to a de-risked, fully funded position.
