Course Overview

Pension issues are one of the major causes that disrupt corporate activity. Given the risks involved and the vulnerability of firms to related liabilities, recent legislations have reiterated the need for stringent risk management. If risks/liabilities are not managed well, pension trustees could often find themselves against various claims and allegations that could jeopardise their own assets.

Since trustees are subject to strict scrutiny and accountability and could most often be misconstrued to be liable and responsible, structuring the right insurance can reduce this burden on trustees. Pension trustee insurance is strong protection in such cases.

This Zoe training course will provide a comprehensive overview of pension trustee insurance for liabilities resulting from pension schemes. The information and knowledge provided through the training course will prepare you and/or your organisation to perform well and risk-free by helping you understand ways and means to get the correct and most fruitful insurance for functions and aspects of the scheme that pose the most risks. This, in turn, will enhance your skill as a professional within the industry, at par with other certified professionals.

The key objective of this Certified Pension Trustee of Scheme, Fund and Liability Insurance training course is to empower professionals with—

  • a sense of satisfaction contributing to safeguarding organisational interests and funds against false allegations, thereby playing a major role in organisational development
  • the required skill and capability to compete with certified pension trustees in the market
  • the knowledge, experience and exposure to easily receive formal certifications in this space for oneself and/or one’s organisation

Training Methodology

All training courses at Zoe Talent Solutions include classroom training sessions conducted by experienced professionals from the relevant domain as well as group activities involving the training group. Before each training session, the trainer thoroughly reviews the course content to check for changes, if needed, as per the nature of the training audience.

Further, the trainer involves the training group in practical exercises and role-plays to foster interaction and learning. Trainees are also encouraged to discuss any related issues or experiences they have with the rest of the training group to foster relatability to the topic.

This approach to training is followed by Zoe Talent Solutions alone for all its courses and is called the Do–Review–Learn–Apply Model.
