Investment

Investing for the future: responsibly, efficiently, professionally

We are an open, defined benefit pension scheme with strong employer backing, positive cash flows and pensions’ obligations that extend to the end of the 21st century. In investing our assets we aim to balance twin objectives, to achieve sufficient, affordable long term returns for the scheme and manage risks to keep the contribution rate as stable as possible.

We report regularly through our website on how these assets are invested, taking account of the needs of our employers, employees, wider society and the environment.

To achieve our investment objectives we invest in a range of assets globally, including equities, bonds (fixed interest securities), private equity and sustainable real assets (including property, infrastructure, forestry and agriculture).

We have a strong focus on responsible and sustainable investment, as we consider environment, social and governance factors create real risks and opportunities for the Fund, particularly given its long term nature.  Other areas of the website provide more detail on our approach to responsible investment,  climate risk and stewardship.

All our day to day investment management is delegated to specialist investment managers, but we retain direct responsibility for asset allocation, manager selection and manager monitoring.
