The Pensions Management Institute (PMI) has announced the launch of a new financial education and guidance service supported by WEALTH at work called ‘RetirementMatters’. The service launched today at the PMIs ‘Trustee Fortnight event’, has been specifically designed to support employees and pension scheme members approaching retirement.
The majority (60 per cent) of pensions industry professionals remain "pessimistic" about the direction of future pension policy following the current pandemic, according to research by the Pensions Management Institute (PMI).
There are currently two accreditation services for professional pension trustees. The first, APTitude, is PMI’s service. The second is provided by the Association of Professional Pension Trustees (APPT). You may be wondering why there are two services. We would like to take this opportunity to explain our position.

When we look at strategic investment in a pensions setting, then this will obviously guide us down the avenue of product rather than person. However, education is fundamental to development and growth. Education is also a strategic investment in its own right. Simply put, investments in quality education lead to more rapid and sustainable economic growth, and development for both the individual organisation and the economy as a whole. I make no apology for the insistence that education in this form is ‘strategic investment’ but without this as a holistic back note then none of the normal organisational processes would matter or run efficiently.
Pension schemes don’t exist in isolation - the pension strategy always has to be looked at in the joint contexts of the wider employee benefit and engagement strategies. ‘Better outcomes for pension scheme members’ takes joined-up thinking that incorporates the evolving employee experience. The COVID-19 pandemic is the biggest crisis that the UK has had to deal with since World War II, resulting in a seismic impact on the public, government, economy, employment and education. For large sections of the UK workforce, financial confidence has been shaken to its core. As we transition towards the very gradual return to whatever shape and form the new ‘normal’ takes, we should be realistic about the unique challenges, uncertainty, fears and concerns affecting the UK workforce.
Responsible investment means more than avoiding harmful sectors and seeking out sustainable opportunities elsewhere. Active managers should use their influence as stewards of capital to encourage positive change through engagement and voting. With this in mind, we consider what effective stewardship means across the asset classes most appropriate to pension fund trustees.
