Regulatory measures to supervise trustees and their service providers
MPFA has developed regulatory measures to supervise trustees, with a view to assisting them to develop good corporate governance, proper risk management and a strong compliance culture within their organizations.
MPFA issues various codes and guidelines to ensure that trustees comply with statutory requirements and to help trustees supervise the work of their appointed service providers.
Service providers are responsible for duties such as scheme administration, record keeping, formulation of investment strategies and decisions, and custody of scheme assets, respectively.
