Watson Wyatt offers A-Day help to trustees

Watson Wyatt has launched a new set of courses to help trus-tees cope with A-Day requirements. The courses are designed to supplement a free e-learning programme being developed by the Pensions Regulator which is due for roll-out this year.

Watson Wyatt’s learning programme includes training courses tailored to trustees’ individual training requirements.

The firm is also holding a series of forums on issues inc-luding firms’ experiences so far of the new funding regime, handling conflicts of interest, pension scheme investment and corporate activity.

In May, Watson Wyatt is offering one-day courses in both Reigate and Bristol providing advice on how to devise effective strategies for defined-contribution schemes and covering key issues in effective def- ined-contribution admin.

A one-day course on investment trustee training will be held in April, helping trustees with decisions about the sch-eme’s investment strategy. The course will also examine different types of investment mana-ger and manager structures and how to get the most out of inv-estment manager meetings.
