Who are Crown Trustees?

Crown Trustees are a specialist firm of advisers and consultants to pensions schemes and trusts offering administration, governance, consultancy and investment services that trustees, employers and pension schemes need to run their plans.

In an ever changing and more complex world, we believe that so called smaller pension schemes have a requirement to be managed in a different way to larger schemes, and as such can benefit from this approach.

By being people driven, and not system orientated, every member in the scheme can have access to a professional adviser backed up with the same level of knowledge and commitment to the respective employer, giving a combined approach to help ensure pension schemes are well run, well invested and regularly reviewed for the benefit of all.


Our focus is to develop long term relationships with the members, trustees and sponsors and as such to be able to adapt to changes in legislation, the global economic environment and underlying pension funds/assets which means that all parties can benefit from the peace of mind of knowing their long term retirement strategies are as up to date as possible.

With the use of leading-edge systems and technology to help manage this process we can provide in-depth analysis and modelling of investment scenarios and retirement forecasts.

We also believe that trustees of other assets and investments can benefit from the same approach, and have a proven track record in advising both pension and trusts over many years.
