Pension Governance Support

The right support to make the right decisions at the right time

At Aon we have pensions experts across a wide range of areas, including governance specialists. We support trustees, sponsors and other governing bodies in relation to their defined benefit and defined contribution pension arrangements, whether these are trust, contract based or public sector arrangements. Our professional pensions governance specialists ensure you have the right support to make the right decisions at the right time.

Good governance is the bedrock of a well-run pension scheme and there is a clear link between good governance and good fund performance. It is not a ‘nice to have’ but an essential part of effective scheme management — for all schemes.
