This work on the law of pension trusts comprehensively fills a gap in the provision of good commentary on pensions law, both from a practical and scholarly perspective. Responding to a paucity of up-to-date publications in this area, David Pollard provides the most detailed treatment available of trust law as it relates to occupational pension schemes. The book provides answers to difficult problems in pensions law often not covered by statute, including trustees' obligations to employers, how spouses and dependents rank as beneficiaries and implied duties owed by employers. Pollard deals with the issues of most concern to practitioners in pensions law, including trustees' investment and amendment powers, and trustee investment duties. This practical guidance is supported and enhanced by incisive academic analysis. Written by a leading pensions practitioner, this book is a must have for all practitioners and scholars in the field.
