Pension Trustees Liability

Protection for the trustees, the employees, the employer company and the fund itself

Pension Trustees Liability

Recommendations by the Financial Services Conduct Authority have added significantly to the bewildering number of statutory duties and obligations faced by Pension Fund Trustees. Failure to adequately perform their fiduciary obligations, comply with legal requirements or exercise reasonable skill and care in their actions as trustees may put their personal assets at risk.

In addition to providing cover for settlement of an action, CorporateArmour Pension Trustee Liability insurance also provides cover for the costs of defending the action – payable as they occur.
