Codes and standards

We are committed to acting in our clients’ best interests. Here are the Codes and Standards that we have signed up to:

The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) Advisory Board - Code of Transparency

We are one of the first investment managers to sign-up to the LGPS Advisory Board Code of Transparency. Signing up to the Code underlines our commitment to delivering transparent reporting of costs to assist administering authorities. We consulted with the Investment Association and Local Government Association on the template used for The Code to ensure that we can deliver what is required and that the information supplied is clear and consistent.
