About this event

This year we will be giving some in depth analysis of how asset pooling in the LGPS will change the landscape for all funds and their wider governance arrangements. 

With some pools operational and others preparing to launch before April 2018, the months ahead will provide significant opportunities through enhanced governance and procurement exercises, but equally there will be some potential risks of poor appointments and disengagement if proper advice and quality communications are not considered. 

Who should attend?

This event is aimed at:

  • elected members with pension fund responsibilities
  • chief financial officers/directors of finance
  • pension fund officers/accountants
  • local pension board members.
