A platform to host the key discussions shifting the focus from risk and optionality to imperative opportunity:
Climate Change Investment Strategies
We explore the climate focused investment strategies tailored to the needs of the LGPS, as well as cutting edge opportunities leading the way in the paradigm shift from risk to opportunity.
With most schemes close to 100% funded, and 2022 valuations looming, we explore which strategies can provide the required income.
We review the most exciting and innovative opportunities out there, from biodiversity investing to the next generation of Emerging Managers.
Data Reporting and Benchmarking for the LGPS
A lack of rating standards, benchmarks and frameworks make effecting reporting a considerable challenge, but new expertise, approaches and tools are constantly being developed to improve the quality of the data being collected.
We explore key updates on TCFD consultations and the challenges which lie ahead in implementing the framework.
We review strategies and the tools designed to address the porting gap and mitigate data uncertainty.
Governance & Decision Making for Effective Action
With LGPS pools now a well established reality, we look at how they are being managed and leveraged to maximise the impact of the LGPS on climate change.
We consider best practice when it comes to establishing governance and review how pools are approaching the challenges of investing in asset classes like real estate and infrastructure
Lastly, we ponder what the pools and the LGPS scheme could look like in 10 years' time and what impact they will have.
