Background

PSS is the super scheme set up for Police following the closure of the Government Superannuation Scheme (GSF) in July 1992.

The manager and trustee of the PSS is PSS Trustees Limited. The trustee currently has five directors, two of whom are appointed by the Police Service Organisations and two of whom are appointed by the Commissioner. Those directors have in turn appointed a professional director, Charlie Cahn, as Chairman.

The trustee is responsible for administering the scheme and overseeing its investments. The trustee does not invest the assets of the fund directly. All the scheme’s assets are invested via Mercer Investment Trusts New Zealand (MITNZ). Mercer appoints professional invesment managers to invest the different asset classes.

Information about this and other key aspects of the PSS can be found in the PSS product disclosure statement available at policesuper.co.nz and companiesoffice.govt.nz/disclose.
