At the end of 2020 we completed our 7th biennial survey of trustee pay.
This year, we are pleased to have received responses from 112 schemes representing a 45% increase since our last survey in 2018. Participation of larger schemes with an asset size of over £1.5bn has increased, and the largest proportion of participants continue to represent defined benefit (DB) schemes, with only 3% purely defined contribution (DC) schemes participating.
Our survey covers trustee pay, the composition of the board, their time commitment, and how these aspects have changed over the last decade. Having added and retained our analysis of the gender pay gap, following further feedback received as part of our last survey cycle, we have now included data on trustee training.
As always, the full report with further analysis and insights is provided to those that participate, therefore if you would like to register your interest in participating in 2022 and obtaining the full report, please do so by following the link below.
