Question Time – Progress on Pooling

The Royal Society of Medicine, 1 Wimpole Street, London W1G 0EA
1:30pm, Wednesday 19th April, 2017

For our seventh biannual Question Time debate in London, we will look at asset allocations in the eight LGPS asset pools, and discuss the legal and governance structures to be put in place as LGPS funds prepare for pooling. April 2018 is beginning to loom large, and this Question Time event is the ideal place to exchange ideas and progress on pre and post-launch initiatives.

The afternoon seminar will consist of two sessions in a “Question Time” format, following an introduction by Chair Jeff Houston (LGA) outlining the current state of play. Each of the two sessions will open with contributions from panellists representing the asset pools and delegates will then have an opportunity to engage in what promises to be a lively question and answer debate.

Our sponsors for the event are State Street and Northern Trust who will also participate in the panel sessions.

The seminar is an ideal opportunity for delegates to assess the progress made so far on pooling initiatives and discuss plans for completion. Afterwards, you are most welcome to attend a drinks reception.

This event will provide genuine insight into the likely shape of investment thinking for the future of the sector and will be held under Chatham House rules to encourage openness and the sharing of information.
