Mencap Pension Plan appoints Kempen as its fiduciary manager

The Trustees of the Mencap Pension Plan tendered for a replacement fiduciary manager at the end of 2016 via a competitive tender process with the assistance of an independent adviser. Mencap sought a partner who would match their core ethos and quality criteria, as well as being able to integrate with all key stakeholders in developing a long term funding solution which is sustainable for the Society and the members of the Plan. 
Both the charity and Trustees believe that Kempen as an organisation is the right fit for the Plan and were impressed with the team and the investment strategy offered.
Mira Mohideen at Mencap said “We have been very pleased with how Kempen has handled the transition to date and very much look forward to working with this dynamic team.
Johan Cras, Managing Director of Kempen, stated: ‘We are very excited about the prospect of working for and with Mencap. We consider this a true partnership, one that will prove future-proof in the current, dynamic world of pensions. 
“This latest win for Kempen is a further signal of our ambition to strengthen and expand Kempen’s position in the pensions market.”
