It is not easy to have the confidence and competence to manage a pension scheme successfully. In this book, Andrew Clare and Chris Wagstaff provide a uniquely objective and practical guide to the range of markets, investments, tools and techniques to which trustees are regularly exposed. They indicate how best to get to grips with investments, carefully navigating through the mystifying jargon. This is a book no pension fund trustee should be without.
