Sixty second summary
Effective implementation, monitoring and reflection
04 Feb 2020
Engagement with solutions providers, particularly the LGPS pools, is vital to effectively implement investment strategy and achieve better outcomes.
Having clear objectives and risk requirements for each element of your investment strategy will help the engagement process.
By openly engaging with key stakeholders as part of any monitoring process you can help clarify roles and responsibilities, identify information requirements and use this as an opportunity to reflect and benefit as a learning organisation.
As the valuation year for the LGPS in England and Wales comes to a close, and the preparation work begins in Scotland and Northern Ireland, we focus on the final two areas of our investment governance framework. We believe this framework is helpful in highlighting key areas to focus on to achieve and maintain success, and the implementation and monitoring stages can have a significant impact on the outcomes for your Fund.
