Burges Salmon Governance Manager (BSGM) is designed to assist both DB and DC pension scheme trustees with their ever-increasing obligations in relation to good governance. BSGM will allow Trustees to ditch the paperwork and adopt a more interactive format – no more page-turning exercises!

BSGM can be used as a DB arrangement’s risk register and/or to carry out an assessment of a DC arrangement’s compliance with the requirements of the DC Code of Practice at a chosen point in time. The results will then be captured (in a printable form, if required). Action points can be recorded, monitored and updated until the date chosen to conduct subsequent reviews. BSGM also has the capability to generate the annual Chair’s Statement.

In using BSGM you will therefore build up a record of your scheme’s risk management processes and/or compliance with the DC Code of Practice. BSGM is available for a competitively priced fixed fee in a standard format. We may also be able to accommodate bespoke requirements – please speak to one of our team to discuss your requirements.

For further details please contact Eve Wallace in our pensions team. Eve will be able to discuss how BSGM can support you with your governance obligations and talk you through the options available. We are also very happy to arrange a demonstration of BSGM, at your convenience.
