The potential impact of new Government regulations and policies on LGPS investment processes may have a far-reaching effect on the officers and committee members at local government pension funds and pools.

As the LGPS evolves it is more important than ever to ensure, and be capable of demonstrating, that responsible investment decision-making and reporting processes are robust. So, how can the industry ensure that investment committees have taken due care of those requirements when setting out their investment strategies?

On the 15th of January 2020, the first Local Authority Responsible Investment Seminar gathered together more than 120 representatives from every aspect of the LGPS to look at the impact of the proposed new regulations on LGPS investment committees. This event was the first step in a drive to formulate a process for the LGPS to investigate the possibility of a standard framework for responsible investment.

The event is free to attend for officers and investment and governance committee chairs at LGPS pension funds and pools. For more information about the event contact Laura Copping at or if you would like to discuss sponsorship opportunities, please contact Jonathan Trinder on 07485 224611 or email
