We were delighted to welcome representatives from our Partner Funds to our Annual Stakeholders’ Day in Wolverhampton.
Held at Molineux Stadium, members of the LGPS Central Limited team highlighted some of the great successes we’ve had over the last year and explained our exciting plans for the future.
Our Chair, Joanne Segars OBE, described just how far we’ve come in the past 12 months, with over £20bn now in assets under management.
She talked about our focus on long-term performance and value for money as we grow these assets over the next 12 months and beyond.
Joanne was joined by incoming CEO Mike Weston, who told Partner Funds of the huge potential that pooling can bring.
Our presenters explained how we’re committed to working in partnership, shared an insight into the current investment landscape and described how our fund managers are getting real value for money from their investments.
We were also joined by some of our external fund managers, who explained how they will manage our recently launched Global Emerging Markets fund on our behalf.
John Burns, Interim CEO and Chief Operating and Financial Officer, was extremely pleased to see so many attend. He said: “It was great to welcome so many of our Partner Funds to our Annual Stakeholders’ Day, which was an opportunity to share as much with them as possible about the tremendous work going on at LGPS Central Limited.”
“Working in partnership is vital to our success, and we’re committed to doing everything we can to make that happen. It’s an exciting time for local government pension pooling and we’re looking forward to achieving a great deal together.”
