Parminder was a Professional Trustee of a large award-winning professional trustee company for over 10 years, managing several trustee appointments, from ongoing trustee appointments, schemes in wind-up, schemes entering the Pensions Protection Fund, to one-off projects.
As a professional trustee, she alongside lay trustees of the Olympic Airlines pensions scheme successfully changed UK pensions legislation to allow the Olympic Pension Scheme to enter the Pension Protection Fund, where there was no precedent and the scheme was not eligible, so allowing the scheme members to benefit from retirement benefits from the PPF.
Parminder has also sat on trustee governance sub-committees, and run trustee meetings, working with other advisors to ensure all compliance, governance and risk issues were handled correctly, as well as running pension litigation cases involving defective drafting, incorrect scheme practices and professional negligence claims. She has past dealings with the Pensions Regulators on its intervention exercises and clearance procedures. She has successfully negotiated scheme mitigations in favour of members of schemes where wholescale scheme amendments were proposed by the employer as well seeing through to a satisfactory conclusion for all parties, tricky scheme funding negotiations.
Parminder’s work has often improved the governance of schemes and reduced risks, by training trustees as well as working with other advisors and employers to run an efficient scheme or one-off project.
Her work as a professional trustee means she is well placed to anticipate and avoid potential issues for pension schemes, lay trustees and employers during projects.
