The Pensions Regulator released the latest module of the free e-learning programme for trustees on 11 April. The toolkits have been developed to help trustees comply with the requirements for trustee knowledge and understanding, introduced by the Pensions Act 2004.

The new module, which continues on the theme of investment from the last module on fund management, aims to help trustees understand any advice that they may receive on strategic investment to allow them to assess which strategies are most appropriate for their scheme. The topics covered in the module include diversification, risk modelling, alternative asset classes, interest rate swaps and the statement of investment principles.
