Professional Corporate Sole Trusteeship

Home / Pensions & Incentives / Professional Trusteeship & Governance / Professional Corporate Sole Trusteeship

A Professional Corporate Sole Trustee (PCST) takes on full responsibility for the governance of your pension scheme.

ZEDRA’s Professional Corporate Sole Trustee (PCST) Service is designed to provide pension schemes with effective and efficient governance, allowing sponsoring employers to focus on high-level strategy and their business objectives.

Our experience shows that a PCST can be very successful across a wide range of sponsors and scheme characteristics. Whilst it works well for smaller schemes and those approaching the final stages of their end game, it can be equally effective for larger schemes and multinational sponsors. Our service is tailored to reflect the distinctive requirements of each scheme.

Our PCST service in brief

  • We assume full responsibility for the governance of your scheme
  • Our service is built on strong relationships and transparent communication
  • You will benefit from a core client team, tailored to your scheme’s needs, with specialist support from the wider ZEDRA team wherever needed
  • Proprietary governance platform built on state-of-the-art technology
  • No compromises on looking out for members and robust scheme governance
  • We will draw on our deep pool of experience and expertise to move your scheme towards its ultimate objectives.

Moving to PCST

We understand that a move to sole trusteeship is a significant change for all parties and it is important to transition as smoothly as possible.

Our team has been involved in many transitions to the sole trustee model, and we are adept at ensuring this process is smooth and the experience and insight of the existing board is not lost.

Our approach

We promise to be proactive and collaborative. We see your success as our success. We will work with you to develop the scheme’s strategy and then proactively seek to deliver the agreed journey plan.

Member outcomes are at the heart of everything we do. Core governance is fundamental to this and we have invested heavily in a proprietary governance platform underpinned by state-of-the-art technology. This ensures our service is cost effective, and the core governance of your scheme is of the highest standard.
