Retirement Funds – demystifying the law

Nolands Forensics Employee Benefits division, under the leadership of Jacques de Klerk, offers the latest insights on retirement  funds via a one-day programme with the intent to unpack the law and to provide guidelines for practical application.

The programme, in short course lecture format, covers topical case studies on legal disputes around funds, dealing with reported case law.

Disputes vary from general administration issues, the allocation of death benefits, the interpretation of contracts and rules, cases attracting punitive cost orders, issues around administrative actions and appeals, and the like.

Funds are unique commercial enterprises and engage in daily commercial activities. Other areas of law and general commercial principles also apply to them, such as the way they contract with others or whether it involves the administration and execution of contracts which they enter.

Jacques guides programme participants through the pitfalls to be avoided and what to look out for.

The programme is of benefit to Management Board members of funds, Principal Officers, Fund Administrators, Rule Drafters, Consultants to Funds, and Legal professionals.

Should clients prefer a more personal approach, Jacques offers client specific one on one employee benefits consulting services.
