DG Publishing was established in 2004 to serve the information needs of the UK’s local authority pension fund sector.

Our first product was the Pension Funds Performance Guide – Local Authority Edition (and associated online service, pensionsperformance.com), which quickly became the go-to source of investment information on local authority pension funds.

In 2008, we launched LAPF Investments magazine. Published every two months, the magazine comprises news, appointments, mandate awards, market reports, surveys and articles that tackle many important issues relevant to local authority pension funds and their advisers.

Since then we have expanded our range of offerings to include conferences and events throughout the UK, all with a focus on pension fund investment.
