The Association of Member Nominated Trustees (AMNT) aspires to be a positive force and a prominent voice in the UK pensions industry today. We believe that given the inherently complex nature of UK pensions and the increasing burden being placed on trustees, that far more support should be made available to member nominees.We are a not-for-profit organisation supporting member-nominated trustees, member-nominated directors and employee representatives of UK based pension schemes in the private and public sector (funded and unfunded).
The Pensions Administration Standards Association (PASA) has been created to provide an independent infrastructure which will set, develop, guide and assess administration standards.PASA will act as a focal point and engage with industry and government to create protocols for understanding good administration - but also appreciates there is no one size that fits all. PASA will develop evidential accreditation practices which will allow benchmarking across and between the industry regardless of how the administration is being delivered. As well as raising the profile of pension administration generally, PASA will focus on three core activities.1. Defining good standards of pensions administration relevant to all providers, whether in-house, third party or insurers2. Publishing guidance to support those standards3. Being an independent accreditation body, assessing the achievement of good standards by schemes (regardless of provider)There is no organisation providing such services across schemes, yet there is a demand for evidence of service quality from scheme trustees, sponsors, administrators, insurers, scheme members and regulators
