LGPS Central Limited is an FCA regulated fund management company, managing the pooled assets of nine Midlands-based local government pension funds.
Since its launch in April 2018, LGPS Central Limited has become responsible for around £40bn of these assets. The volume of assets under management is expected to grow rapidly over the next few years as, in partnership with our Partner Funds, new Sub-Funds are developed and launched into which Partner Funds’ assets will transition. A range of further Sub-Fund launches are planned for this financial year across a range of asset classes.
LGPS Central Limited is owned equally by eight pension funds and is dedicated to the management of local government pension assets. The aim of the Company is to use the combined buying power of its Partner Funds to reduce costs, improve investment returns and widen the range of available asset classes for investment – all for the benefit of local government pensioners, employees and employers. We are also committed to fully integrating Responsible Investment and Engagement into all our investment processes.
The management of Local Government Pension Scheme funds is going through significant change, providing career-changing opportunities for those who have the relevant investment experience and who want to work within a company which values integrity, trust, transparency, diversity, fairness and partnership. LGPS Central Limited aims to be a centre of excellence and we seek candidates who share our values to help us achieve that goal.
Our objective is to be a leading investment management company working with and for our Partner Funds. With a focus on value for money and performance we aspire to be one of the best because this is how we will deliver the superior investment returns and low costs for our Partner Funds.
