Welcome to Ross Trustees

Ross Trustees, part of the Independent Governance Group, specialises in providing independent professional trustee and associated services to occupational pension schemes.

Professional trusteeships are delivered through a combination of chair of trustees, co-trustee and sole corporate trustee appointments. The professional trusteeship side of the business is strengthened by a standalone pensions support services arm, which provides secretarial, pensions managerial and governance solutions to a variety of clients.

What we do


Ross Trustees and Independent Trustee Services (“ITS”) have come together to form Independent Governance Group (IGG), and in doing so, become the UK’s leading provider of professional pensions trusteeship and governance services.

With 437 appointments and a combined value of over £340bn of assets under governance, the combination of the two businesses creates a powerhouse with a deep pool of talent and resources and a compelling proposition for trustees, scheme sponsors and the advisory community.

The Ross Trustees and ITS brands will continue to operate under the IGG umbrella brand for a short period of time and until full integration of the two brands is completed.
