Welcome to APPT

Chairman, APPT

Welcome to the website of the Association of Professional Pension Trustees (APPT).   The APPT is a body which aims to:

  • encourage and promote the highest professional standards in those who practise as professional pension trustees
  • promote the role of professional trustees.

The Council members of APPT are currently:

  • Graham Wardle
  • Jackie Woods
  • Andrew Bradshaw
  • Andrew Parker
  • Nita Tinn
  • Sarah Marshall

APPT provides its members with the opportunity to meet and discuss topical issues in informal settings through their successful dinners kindly hosted by businesses keen to engage with professional trustees. We also arrange events where leading professionals from the world of pensions can update members on current developments and trustees can share their experiences and concerns. Please see our “Events” section for more information of forthcoming events arranged by APPT.

The APPT Council reviews TPR/DWP consultation documents and invites comments from members before responding on behalf of the APPT as a whole. Details of our recent responses can be found under the “Consultation Responses” section.

APPT also aims to have a high profile within the pensions industry. It is where corporate entities and trustee boards should turn when considering the appointment of a professional trustee. We have prepared a buyers guide for those looking to appoint a professional trustee. APPT GUIDE
