  • A master trust is a trust-based DC pension scheme used by non-connected participating employers. The administration, communication and investment management services are provided by the master trust provider and the trustee services are provided by a collective trustee board, largely or fully independent of the master trust provider.

    This briefing note considers workplace defined contribution (DC) pension provision delivered through master trust schemes – explaining why they are being increasingly used and how our independent consultancy services can support companies.

    Amongst other things, we look at:

    • why companies/trustees are looking at master trust schemes;
    • the different types of master trust providers;
    • other uses of a master trust; and
    • master trust provider research and selection.
