Wrigleys Pensions Trustees Limited - a specialist independent trustee company, offering experienced trusteeship to schemes of all sizes.
The intricacies of pension scheme trusteeship mean that many trustee boards and employers are now looking to the assistance and reassurance that a professional independent trustee can offer.
Quality trusteeship is crucial to the effective operation of any occupational pension scheme and for ensuring compliance with the law.

They continue to operate in an economic climate which makes pensions provision a significant burden for many businesses.
