List of LGPS pension fund clients for investment manager Code signatories

When investment managers signed up to the Code, they agreed to supply LGPS pension funds with complete cost data in a standard template format. To date, the expectation has been that this has predominantly been through excel documents emailed to LGPS pension funds. However, there has been no ability for the Scheme Advisory Board (SAB) to assist LGPS pension funds in this process and monitor late (or non) provision of the information.

In signing up to the Code, investment managers also agreed to provide templates to a third party nominated by the SAB for the purpose of ensuring compliance – this is the system now being put in place by Byhiras (the system builder). The system will track when templates are due and inform the SAB if they are missing or late.

In order for the SAB to assure investment managers that their LGPS pension fund clients are content for them to comply with this part of the Code, LGPS pension funds were emailed on 17 February 2020 asking for confirmation that this was the case. The list of LGPS pension funds and date of responses to this email, giving positive affirmation, is shown below:

In the 2015 Summer Budget it was announced that the UK government would work with Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) administering authorities to reform how LGPS investments are managed.  Eight pools were formed and governance structures put into place. The relevant legal entity shortnames on the system are shown in the summary table below. For more information on the LGPS pools, please visit the websites.

NB Template data is only viewable by LGPS pension funds and their investment managers unless both parties provide explicit permission for a third party. The SAB is prevented from accessing template level data by the system design and the user permission framework. It can only use the system for compliance reporting as well as the viewing of average and total cost data for the scheme annual report on a combined national LGPS level. Byhiras is contractually prohibited from using, transferring or sharing in any way the physically separate LGPS data.
