As a LAPFF member, the Fund has an opportunity at quarterly business meetings to suggest topics or companies for engagement. The Executive Committee makes the decision on whether or not to go forward with an engagement suggested by a LAPFF member. LAPFF’s progress is actively monitored and reviewed at each quarterly Business Meeting. In addition, the Executive Committee assesses the performance of LAPFF’s primary service provider annually.
As an organisation with a member on the LAPFF Executive Committee, the Fund's Director of Pensions participates directly in engagement meetings with companies on an ad-hoc basis.
The Fund is directly involved in engagement work through the PRI and comments on the engagement strategy with collaborating investments.
The Fund collaborates proactively with the UK Pension Fund Roundtable and other informal collective bodies on corporate engagement.
The Fund will engage directly where the opportunity to partner is not available or is not appropriate. This might be done with the aid of a consultant, but the Fund's RI Officer will play a direct role in setting the theme, objectives, business case, timeline, method, escalation steps and so on.
