Entegria has launched a training course for UK pension fund trustees looking to become prudent experts, as envisioned in the Myners report.
Entegria, the benefits consulting division of Hogg Robertson, say that the new training course will help trustees to develop scheme specific benchmarks and asset allocation strategies for defined benefit pension schemes.
The course, scheduled to begin in June, will be based on real case studies. The case studies will feature both healthy and poorly funded schemes, in order to show trustees what issues they will have to cover and how to deal with them.
Additionally, Entegria is planning a second training course, based on defined contribution schemes, for later in the year.
