MHCLG consultation response
03 Jul 2019
Hymans Robertson LLP is pleased to provide its response to the policy consultation entitled “Local Government Pension Scheme: Changes to the Local Valuation Cycle and the Management of Employer Risk” published in May 2019 by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG). We are responding in our capacity as a firm of pension professionals, actively working in the public sector, particularly advising on the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS).
Hymans Robertson has grown up with the LGPS. The firm was founded to provide advice to the LGPS in 1921. Alongside our actuaries, there is a team of 15 consultants providing investment advice and a team providing benefit and governance advice to our LGPS clients.
Our long history of working with local authorities means that we have developed a real understanding of the challenges they face in the areas covered by this consultation.
We believe that we are well placed, therefore, to respond to the questions posed by MHCLG in this consultation paper.
