Meet the Trustees

The Trustee Board is responsible for making sure the Scheme is secure, correctly administered and well-managed in order to pay all its members' benefits in full and on time. To do this, the Trustees must maintain a strong governance framework and a robust investment strategy.

The Scheme is managed by 12 Trustees made up of:

Six Company Appointed Trustees, who are appointed by the sponsoring employers of each of the two sections; and

Six Member Elected Trustees, three from both of the Scheme’s sections - A, and B, who are elected from, and by, the members.

All Trustees carry the same powers and responsibilities regardless of whether they've been appointed or elected.
