Please provide information in relation to the appointment of a trustee for the Quantum Global Pension Schemes, eg apollo, golf, etc. Ie, schemes run by combinations of Ronnie Anderson, Louise Anderson, Rachel Anderson.
I am particularly interested in knowing has a trustee been appointed, if not will there be, and how will the public find out in order to ensure their interests are represented.
Duty to confirm or deny whether TPR holds the information requested
When a request is made a public authority has two duties under the Freedom of Information Act:
- the duty to inform the requester whether or not it holds the requested information
- and, if it does hold the information, the duty to provide the information to the requester
I can confirm we do not hold the information requested. The Pensions Regulator (TPR) had no involvement in the appointment of the current trustee for the Quantum Global Pension Schemes therefore we are unable to supply the information requested.
Duty to provide advice and assistance
In order to assist with your request, you may find the following link of use regarding the way TPR may intervene to appoint or remove trustees from any given scheme. In relation to your particular question how the public will know that a trustee appointment has been made see paragraph titled 'appointing and removing trustees'.
I would advise that members are able to make requests to their schemes trustees at any time. In order to assist your search for the details requested, I would advise contacting your scheme provider or trustee. They will be better placed to provide you with details about the governance of the scheme.
