Diversity the key to good governance
We believe that corporate governance is fundamental to ensuring that the Trustee and the fund are managed properly and deliver long-term results to fund members.
Composition of the Board
The Board is comprised of four Employer Directors, four Member Directors and four Independent Directors.
Transitioning to a governance model in which one third of the Board are Independent Directors, has enriched the Board’s insight, discussion and capacity for fully informed and improved decision making. In addition, our governance model ensures continuity of focus on the interests of members and employers.
The Board's composition reflects our commitment to ensuring Equip members and employers can be confident that our Directors have the appropriate diversity of experience, skills, education and perspectives to manage the Fund in accordance with its governing rules, relevant laws and in the best interests of the members of the Fund.

Skills-based Board and Executive Team
The Trustee is committed to ensuring that, collectively, our Directors and Executive Officers have the full range of skills needed for the effective and prudent operation of the Trustee’s business operations, and that individually each Director has the skills that allow them to make an effective contribution to Board deliberations and processes. The Trustee is also committed to ensuring that Directors and Executive Officers collectively have the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to understand the risks associated with the Trustee’s business operations, including its legal and prudential obligations, and to ensure that the Trustee’s business operations are managed in an appropriate way taking account of these risks.
The Directors and Executive Officers bring a range of skills and experience together to form a team that is responsible for the day to day and strategic operations of the fund.
