Pension Schemes Act (Northern Ireland) 2016

Section 16: Investment powers

Under this section regulations may make provision in relation to investment powers of trustees or managers of schemes containing collective benefits.  The regulations may also make provision allowing trustees or managers to delegate decisions about investments to another person and provision about the investment powers of any person to whom such decisions have been delegated.  In this way trustees or managers can delegate powers to those with investment knowledge to act in an appropriate way.  These regulations may make similar provision to Article 34 or 36 of the 1995 Order, which contain provision relating to powers of investment, delegation and choice of investments for occupational trust based schemes.
