WELCOME TO HS SOLE TRUSTEES LTD
a new solution in this ever-changing pensions world.

Trusteeship has for many years been provided by employers (employer nominated), lay trustees (member nominated) and professional trustees (on an individual basis).

With the increasing requirements for Pension Scheme Governance comes additional risk and cost. HS Sole Trustees Ltd are able to take this risk away from you and act entirely as a Sole Trustee. The even better news is that we take away all the governance, compliance and reporting burden away from you using our APPT qualified Trustees.

Our mission once appointed will be to work very closely with the Scheme sponsor and the scheme actuary to ensure that agreed journey plans, whether to buy-out, buy-in or self-sufficiency status are met, and costs are fully controlled going forward.

HS Sole Trustees are fully independent and therefore are happy to work with your existing administrators, actuary’s, pension lawyers, investment consultants and auditors. We are however mindful that service and cost are paramount in the effective running of any Scheme, and we will undertake regular reviews of all your service providers.

We hope you enjoy the site and because this is a “people based” business we would be delighted to talk with you to discuss your needs via Zoom or Teams or indeed take part in any RFP.
