Trustees' handbook of Jamaica
This eighth document of the PLAC Network Technical Assistance Document Series is entitled “Trustees Handbook” and was especially designed for the Board of Trustees that is responsible for the management of private pension plans in Jamaica. The handbook aims to provide trustees with important learning, understanding and clarification on pension-related matters. It covers a range of topics to assist trustees in the effective management of pension plans and, by extension, contribute to strengthening the regulatory framework of the pension industry. This initiative seeks to help trustees understand their obligation to make informed decisions, manage risk and reduce ambiguity and misinterpretation by providing an official source of reference and to increase knowledge and understanding of the operations of pension plans and the requirements contained in the Pensions Act and associated regulations, applicable policies and procedures and best practices.
