Attended an excellent half day seminar run by Redington an innovative and dynamic new force in investment consulting who had assembled 100 of the UK’s leading pension scheme trustees to discuss the future of trustee communication. The interactive format allowed trustees to give their opinions on key issues, consider the impact of social media on trustee communication and participate in shaping its future. There was also a presentation of Mallow Street a new social media site specifically dedicated to pension trustees, allowing them to easily share information and experience. This should hopefully be with us in a few months time. As a convert to social media this looks like a really innovative development and it’ll be interesting to see how it evolves and drags the often notoriously conservative pension trustee in to the 21st century.
