mallowstreet time accredited as CPD time: Putting trustee education front and centre

Last month we launched the revamped mallowstreet.com, incorporating cutting edge technology for easier interaction and a unique CPD Centre to help trustees on their educational journey.

The Pensions Management Institute agrees with the educational quality of our content and has professionally accredited mallowstreet.com, as well as all of our mallowstreet University events. Now, all the time that pension funds spend on mallowstreet.com or at a mallowstreet event is pre-approved for CPD accreditation by the PMI, and members can track their CPD automatically using the CPD Centre. We are so excited as we believe this tool will help trustee boards with tracking education, but ultimately, collaboration – resulting in better results for members.

Better interactions for a growing and engaged community

In June we welcomed 49 new users onto the platform, just over 50% of whom hold trustee roles. We also saw more than 200 unique posts and comments (double the activity from May) and the top 10 search terms highlight what is front of mind for trustees on mallowstreet.

I also thought it would be good to share some of the most popular blogs over the past month:

  • Too much money: It’s time to push back on DB deficits
  • Trustee duty to help members up against the Grim Reaper
  • The infrastructure and real assets Investment Focus
  • DC Indaba: Poker, AI and Brexit challenge the way we think
  • A climate for change
  • It is clear that pension funds are looking at mapping out their end game, structuring recovery plans, and focusing on how to build better defined contribution schemes.
