Despite a comprehensive pension related debate held on the governmental level and in media in Poland, little time was spent, however, on discussing nature and usefulness of governance in the context of pension systems aimed at would-be-pensioners. Attention is predominantly paid to the role of governance for investments. Unfortunately, governance is not addressed, with reference to pension funds, the way it should be. The author is looking for answers to questions about the state of pension fund governance in Poland, thus trying to find methods for improvement. Nevertheless, this text concentrates on a small fragment of the pension system in Poland. The article aims at attempting identification of issues to be faced by governance in voluntary pension funds that are managed by universal pension fund management companies.
