It will soon be launching a campaign focussed on the fundamentals of good governance, according to the spokesperson.In the longer term, it intends to streamline and consolidate its existing stock of guidance and improving its website in a bid to provide further clarity about its expectations.Last month TPR published a revised description of who it considers to be a professional trustee, saying this paved the way to build standards and accreditation for professional trustees through the Professional Trustee Standards Working Group. The UK pensions regulator should change its approach to ensuring good pension fund governance from one focussed on processes to people, according to the country’s pensions trade body.Releasing a discussion paper on what constitutes good pension fund governance, the Pensions & Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) said it depended on the people who provide it.The Pensions Regulator (TPR) should therefore concentrate on ensuring that individuals who are appointed to boards and committees have the appropriate knowledge and experience, according to the PLSA.It said this is not TPR’s current approach, and that its discussion paper suggests this is focused on process rather than people. This had not worked so far, according to the PLSA.last_img read more
