How the Fund is managed

Our Fund is managed by a Trustee Company (the Trustee) which ensures that the Fund runs in line with its rules, legislation and best practice requirements.


The Trustee’s Board is made up of eight directors. Four nominated by the Society and four nominated by the members.

The Board meets quarterly, but there are also three Committees who have been given responsibility for the more day-to-day operations and who work within a framework of objectives and policies. The Board and the Committees are supported by the Fund Secretary, Vanessa Roberts. Chris Grant, the Fund's Chief Investment Officer, and his team are responsible for the day-to-day monitoring and management of the Fund's investments.
