What is a Master Trust?
A Master Trust is an occupational pension scheme. The Aviva Retail Master Trust consists of one legal trust and a board of trustees, which acts as trustee for the whole trust. Each employer using the trust has its own section within the overall arrangement.
The role of the Trustee is crucial. They have ultimate responsibility for the investments in the scheme and the ways in which the scheme serves its members. The Trustees are supported by Key Function Holders – Grant Thornton as the Internal Audit Partner and LCP as Risk Manager.
Is a Master Trust the right choice for you?
Aviva recognises that employers have an important choice to make when it comes ensuring they meet any regulatory requirements for pensions provision including IORP II.
The Aviva Retail Master Trust will provide comfort that all regulatory requirements are met and includes a number of benefits:
- Significantly reduced compliance costs for employers compared to running their own trust-based scheme
- Professional oversight and governance on members benefits
- A wide range of funds across different risk profiles, asset classes, fund managers and investment styles
- Access to our default My Future range of Lifestyle strategies
