mallowstreet launches online learning tool for pensions trustees

RELATED TOPICS​

mallowstreet, a platform bringing the institutional pensions industry together in an effort to help solve the pensions and savings crisis, has launched the ‘Black Belt’, an online learning tool aimed at pension scheme trustees.

The learning and assessment tool is constructed around 17 knowledge areas to provide the individual trustee with a granular appraisal of their own capabilities and aptitudes when it comes to their role on the board.
 
The chief goal and responsibility of the trustee is to serve the best interests of their scheme members. The Black Belt survey has therefore been conceived with the member in mind, asking questions such as what are the skills required to represent them at a sophisticated financial, social and ethical degree? And how should a trustee board be constructed to ensure that these requirements are consistently and conscientiously met?
 
Stuart Breyer, CEO at mallowstreet, says: “Clearly not all trustees will obtain similar scores across the spectrum, but the ability to recognise one’s strengths and indeed weaknesses will provide the individual with an insight into where they are performing their role to a high standard, as well as the areas in which they would benefit from improvement. 
 
“It is our hope that by bringing together a diverse group of individuals, all trustees will be able to increase their knowledge and understanding – of the industry and themselves, thereby making better decisions, and creating a stronger pensions system. And to get their Black Belt in pensions – without any bruises.”
