Who we are and what we do
TPL is a company fundamentally based on a knowledge and experience in pensions built up by our employees over the last 25 years. Our most important strength is our people and we believe our senior team of professionals providing truly independent trustee services is second to none in the Irish market. This is critical given the nature of trusteeship and the strategic importance for employers and trustee boards of the sound governance and management of pension schemes on behalf of their employees and beneficiaries.
For more information about who we are and what we do please go to www.trusteeprinciples.ie.
TPL is a subsidiary of Willis Towers Watson PLC and operates as a stand-alone trustee business. Willis Towers Watson is a major global insurance broking and employee benefits firm.
Our trustee services meet the demand from employers that are looking to appoint pension scheme trustees to bring additional independence, expertise and experience to the trusteeship of their schemes. As pensions specialists, we have an in-depth knowledge of the complex range of legislative, financial, investment, employee engagement and operational issues that trustees have to consider.
TPL will use your information in accordance with this Notice.
