IORP II outlines obligations and considerations for trustee and plan sponsors

IORP II, the EU Pensions Directive that was transposed to Irish regulations in 2021 sets minimum standards for the management and supervision of pension schemes in order to protect the entitlements of members and beneficiaries. It introduces a number of new obligations on Irish pension schemes. At Acuvest, our pension specialists assess the preparedness of your scheme for complying with IORP II, and other relevant legislation such as the EU (Shareholders Rights) Regulation. We then support you in addressing any identified gaps.
