Our governance experts help establish and improve governance frameworks. We understand the law that underpins them so we can find governance solutions that address legal issues and work for your scheme.
More than ever, trustees and employers need to ensure their governance measures are not merely there to tick boxes but provide a meaningful process to encourage sound, transparent decision making and to manage risk effectively. External scrutiny has created added impetus, with TPR increasingly focusing on the promotion of good governance through its 21st century trusteeship initiative.
We help our clients meet their governance requirements by ensuring the efficient running of boards through business planning, effective use of sub-committees and delegation, and by reviewing existing governance arrangements to ensure they remain suitable for current needs and circumstances.
Good governance achieves good outcomes for members whilst contributing significantly to risk and cost management. We tailor governance solutions for conflicts of interest, data protection and other key operational areas to suit scheme needs and the demands of specific projects as well as preparing and advising on risk registers and policy documents relating to anti-bribery, whistleblowing and other aspects of compliance.
