‘The voice of small schemes’

Atkin Trustees focus on providing a supportive, innovative and collaborative service to small and medium-sized pension schemes which require a more hands-on and thoughtful approach than larger schemes; A personal approach combined with innovative thinking and practical solutions to help you manage your defined benefit scheme in a cost-effective manner.


Small schemes: a better way

Small schemes often don’t have the budgets of larger schemes but must still meet all governance requirements, which increase as time passes.  We know that it’s important that your scheme is run well and cost-efficiently.  Atkin Trustees provide:

  • Trustees that understand the scheme, the sponsor and the membership and are available to deal personally with queries.
  • Trustees that care for members and look to keep them well informed and protected.
  • Trustees that can challenge advice and costs of scheme advisers.

If you are an Insolvency Practitioner, you will know that any final salary schemes will be dealt with via the Pension Protection Fund. However, companies will often operate trust-based Defined Contribution and group life schemes. The sponsoring employer may act as the trustee of these schemes, meaning the IP now has the responsibility for operating and winding-up these schemes in accordance with the scheme rules and legislation.
