Decision Maker: Pension Fund Committee
Decision status: Recommendations approved
Is Key decision?: No
A report was presented on the attendance by members of the Committee at internal/external pension related training events since the last meeting.
County Councillor J Fillis reported that he had found the 14th Annual LGPS Trustees’ Conference in June useful and informative and he referred members of the Committee to his written report on the Conference which was available to view in the Pensions Library.
Councillor D Borrow stated that he had found the format of the LAPF Strategic Investment Forum in July, with shorter sessions on subjects such as pooling and ethical investment, to be effective. He also highlighted an interesting presentation which had been given on the ability of individuals to challenge the 'group think' of organisations on matters such as finance.
County Councillors Ellard and Mein both reported that they had found the sessions at the LGC Investment Summit 'Navigating the new landscape' in September to be interesting and informative, particularly with regard to future pooling requirements. It was noted that information from the Summit would be made available to members of the Committee via the Pensions Library.
With regard to the internal workshops on the Annual Report and Accounts (June) and the LCPF Risk Register (July) the Chair reported that both sessions had been informative and well attended and he urged members of the Committee to attend future workshops.
Resolved: That the report and feedback given at the meeting is noted.
