Pension Scheme Trustees have numerous statutory duties and are entrusted with the responsibility for making decisions which affect the members of such schemes. These obligations placed on Trustees continue to increase as new legislation is implemented. Trustees of pension schemes are held to a high fiduciary standard and as such may be held personally liable where they are accused of making mistakes or oversights in the performance of their duties as well as where they have failed to comply with the investment principles for their particular scheme.

Senior managers, officers and directors are well rewarded for their professional abilities. However, these positions come with a great deal of risk. After all, mistakes happen to the best of us, and these are roles which, by their very nature, expose everything they do to considerable scrutiny. So, they need coverage that will take on any potential risk that might result from their actions. Management Liability insurance enables them to undertake their duties with the confidence they will be protected from any unforeseen adversity.

The growing impact of workplace stress has been revealed today in a new survey – with three quarters of people describing it as a ‘way of life’.

The research – conducted by Cascade HR – polled 540 UK participants across a range of occupations and demographics, in readiness for Mental Health Awareness Week (14-18 May).

20% of respondents claimed they had been off work due to stress, but a staggering 67% said they had felt stressed at work – for a period of one week or more – during the past 12 months.
