It is so important for trustees to be fully equipped with all the necessary skills and tools to do their jobs to the best of their ability as we all strive for ever-improving governance standards to drive better outcomes for scheme members.”

James Double, Director at PSGS said: “We’ve been calling for increased standards and greater professionalism in the independent trustee world for 10 years and are very pleased to reach the milestone of having 20 professional trustees accredited through the PMI’s Aptitude programme.
