Local Pensions Partnership Investments (LPPI), the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) investment pool which provides a whole scheme management model for the stewardship of client fund assets, has appointed Matthew Graham as Chief Business Development Officer and a member of the LPPI Executive Committee.

Joining in September, Graham will take responsibility for the marketing, communications and client management teams at LPPI. He will play a pivotal role in continuing to build the LPPI proposition and growth plan, for the benefit of our existing clients and stakeholders.

Graham joins with 25 years of business development and client management experience. He has worked with LGPS and other institutional investors across a range of asset classes, including equities, fixed income, real estate, infrastructure, and private debt.

As head of UK and multinational pensions at Aviva Investors, Graham led strategy, business development and client management across the key client groups of LGPS funds, corporate defined benefit (DB) pensions and defined contribution (DC) pensions.

Graham has worked with the LGPS for more than 15 years, during which time he has developed a deep understanding of the needs of LGPS funds, and strong relationships with both the pools and the underlying schemes. Most recently he has been working at Border to Coast Pensions Partnership.

Chris Rule, Chief Executive Officer at LPPI, says: “Matthew will be joining the executive team at an important and exciting stage of LPPI’s development. His extensive experience across sales, marketing and client management gives me confidence that he will strike the right balance between excellence in client management, and growth through new collaborative initiatives with aligned long-term investors.

“LPPI works closely with a range of other asset owners and LGPS pools via partnerships such as GLIL Infrastructure and The London Fund, delivering through a model that is strongly aligned with government policy direction for greater collaboration and consolidation. Over the past eight years we have demonstrated the LPPI model can drive value for money, improved funding outcomes and a resilience which is hard for individual asset owners to achieve alone.”

Matthew Graham, Chief Business Development Officer at LPPI, adds: “I’m delighted to be joining the LPPI team. As the LGPS continues to ensure the best outcomes for members, the pools have an important and growing role to play. LPPI has a proven track record, mature investment capabilities and a breadth of service that will be appealing to a range of new partners. I’m really looking forward to working with the strong teams already in place at LPPI, to continue supporting our existing clients in the right way and developing new partnerships. This is an exciting opportunity to help shape the next stages of evolution for LPPI, the LGPS and the broader pension landscape in the UK.”
