Meet the Trustees
The role of the JMEPS Trustees is to ensure that the Scheme is administered in accordance with its Trust Deed and Rules and in the interests of all its members. The Trustees meet at least five times a year, and they retain firms of professional advisers for day to day advice to ensure that the Scheme runs smoothly. A list of the Trustees' professional advisers is contained within the Plan's latest Annual Report and Accounts and can also be found on the left hand side of this page.
There are currently seven individual Trustees. Three Trustees are nominated by the Company, three are elected by members, known as ‘Member Nominated Trustees’ and one is independent.
