The changing regulatory landscape in the pensions sector, as well as increased corporate activity and business restructuring, is driving demand for our professional trustee services. Partnering with LDC will help the business to grow more rapidly to meet this demand. It will also help us to further expand our products and services as we continue to support more pension schemes and their members.”
In February 2023, LDC backed the merger of Ross Trustees and Independent Trustee Services to create Independent Governance Group (IGG). With 437 appointments and a combined value of more than £340bn of assets under governance, the formation of IGG created the UK’s leading professional pensions trusteeship and governance services firm.
The Ross Trustees brand will operate under the IGG umbrella until the integration of both businesses is completed later this year, and LDC is now supporting the leadership team at IGG as it continues to grow the group organically and through acquisition.
