In appointing a delegated provider, trustees delegate day-to-day pension scheme investment decision-making and implementation to third-party providers – usually consultants or asset managers – within parameters set by trustees who continue to set risk and return objectives and define permitted investments. Delegated investment is also sometimes referred to as “fiduciary management” and “implemented consulting”.
Demand for delegated investment is growing. This is partly because many trustees find it difficult to deal with the complexity of many of today’s investment decisions within the confines of their quarterly meeting schedules and governance framework. By delegating to professionals, trustees are ensuring decisions are made and implemented by investment experts in a timely fashion.
Aon Hewitt has responded to the increasing demand from trustees for delegation by establishing specialist delegated investment services. Around the world Aon Hewitt serves more than 190 schemes with delegated assets under management of more than £37bn.
