LGPS Central is set up to provide investment opportunities to its eight Partner Funds that are suited to their investment beliefs and strategies. In line with this, we inherently take a long-term approach and view Responsible Investment (RI) as supportive of risk-adjusted returns over the time horizon of Partner Fund investments. Linked to this is a view that diversification across investments with low correlation improves the risk return profile. As of submission of this report (March 2020) we offer investment opportunities to Partner Funds across listed equities, corporate bonds, infrastructure and private equity. LGPS Central Partner Funds take a view that financial markets could be materially impacted by climate change and by the response of climate policymakers. In October 2019, LGPS Central launched a Climate Multi Factor Fund which incorporates three key climate change considerations; carbon emissions, fossil fuel reserves and green revenues. This Fund has been designed to take into account the risks and opportunities associated with climate change, and at the same time achieve superior investment returns over the long-term.
