Introduction to the LGPS Training Event – September 2016


Following the success of last year’s event, the CIPFA Pensions Network again offered a training event to capture all of the key aspects involved in managing a local government pension fund. Aimed at new or inexperienced officers and elected members, this course, based on the CIPFA Knowledge and Skills Framework, provided an insight into the wide range of different professional disciplines which impact on the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS), including actuaries, accountants, auditors, custodians and investment advisers, and also covered all of the legal and regulatory requirements and highlighted the importance of good governance when charged with responsibility of operating a public sector pension fund.
