Ten questions to help trustees to challenge their advisors
The trustee role can be viewed as similar to that of a non-executive director; they are expected to make decisions on a range of topics. The challenge here is that trustees are unlikely to reach a stage where they are as knowledgeable on every topic as the advisers who are presenting them with recommendations.
By employing superior questioning techniques, you can make a contribution even when it’s not your area of expertise. As part of our suite of Trustee Effectiveness tools we have worked with behavioural science specialists Behave London to develop ten questions designed to help you gain confidence in the decisions you make as a trustee, whether for your Defined Benefit or Defined Contribution scheme. Our questions will help you to understand the decision, to test it and to assess how robust the idea is, all the way through to completion.
