Key insights

  • Obtaining professional advice: We consider why you should obtain professional, independent advice, how to avoid conflicts of interest, the risks associated with receiving advice from trustees and investment managers, and our recommended approach at BW.
  • Sustainable, ethical and social investment: A key change to the guidance is how trustees can add more value to their investment strategy by incorporating a more sustainable approach, as well as ethical restrictions and other non-financial factors. We look at this in detail. 
  • Manager selection and monitoring: We analyse the best way to go about selecting an investment manager or funds to select and hold your investments.
