The voice of our members
The AMNT aims to provide member nominated trustees with a voice to put forward our views to government, the regulator and other bodies. One of our priorities has therefore been to respond to consultations on matters that affect our members.
The many consultations to which AMNT has responded include:
Association of British Insurers
Definition of terms used to describe investment risks
Red Tape Challenge
Submission to the Red Tape Challenge regarding pensions, putting forward a well argued alternative to the current scheme valuation regulations
Scheme valuation regulations
AMNT has made trustees’ views known to government and the industry on both defined benefit and defined contribution pension schemes; we have worked with others on alternatives to the current DB scheme valuation regulations and to the current DC system and have widely disseminated our views.
Financial Reporting Council
Revised version of Statutory Illustrations of Money Purchase Benefits
Improving Outcomes for DC
AMNT responded to the Pensions Regulator’s invitation to comment on the proposals Improving Outcomes for DC and we were included in the DWP’s working parties on defined ambition pensions.
The organisation has also brought DB trustees together to discuss the crisis in DB schemes and how trustees can respond to it.
Financial Services Skills Council
Revision of National Occupational Standards for Trustees
AMNT worked with the Pensions Regulator on their very welcome revised Trustee Toolkit and assisted in testing it prior to it going live.
Making views known in government
We have also put forward the views of member-nominated trustees as a member of the government’s Trustees’ Panel and the Final Reporting Council’s Actuarial Users’ Committee.
Red Line Voting is AMNT's groundbreaking initiative to help pension schemes that invest in pooled funds – to direct how the votes associated with the companies they invest in are cast. The Red Lines will cover the full ESG (environmental, social and governance) remit
