Practical Governance: Retirement Funds aims to provide trustees of pension and retirement funds with a solid understanding of the business of retirement funds.

When faced with thick law books and files of practice notes, many trustees are uncertain where to start in tackling the daunting task that lies ahead of them. This guide offers an easy-to-understand approach that breaks issues down in bite-sized chunks.

The book includes recent changes to the Pension Funds Act, the requirements of the Financial Services Laws General Amendment Act 45 of 2013 and relevant recommendations of the King Code.  

Practical Governance: Retirement Funds will benefit both new trustees and more experienced persons. Once familiar with issues as explained in this book, a trustee will be better equipped to discharge his or her responsibilities.
