LPFA's Strategic Aim 2016-19

You will see contained within the 2016-19 Strategic Policy Statement that the LPFA’s ultimate aim is to make sure sufficient funds are available for all current and future pensions.

We believe that one way to deliver this is by collaborating with like-minded pension funds. This could be in the form of increased co-investment opportunities between LGPS funds or what we have termed a full Asset and Liability Management (ALM) partnership – an arrangement whereby the assets of both funds are pooled, generating the efficiencies that can come with scale.

Liabilities can be managed across the whole pool, drawing on combined investment expertise and creating economies of scale. Ultimately, this should further enhance investment performance and facilitate more stable employer contributions.

LPFA’s strategy is underpinned by the following three main pillars:

• Operational efficiency. 

• Innovation in investment and liability management.   

• Partnership working.
