Find out about the LGPS Pension Fund, how it's performing and its strategies.

West Sussex Pension Fund is run by West Sussex County Council (the "administering authority" in the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations).

The objective of investment is to deliver long-term returns which are greater than the growth in liabilities.

Pensions Panel

The County Council has set up a Pensions Panel who make decisions and take responsibility for management of the fund, acting in the interests of all employers, members and their dependants.

The Pension Fund invests in equities and bonds, property and private equity. Its overall investment strategy is set out in the Investment Strategy Statement (ISS), including the consideration of the effects of social, environmental and ethical issues of the performance of a company and company engagement.

Details of the fund’s investments and performance is published in the Annual Report and Accounts, which are published following the completion of the statutory audit in the autumn.

Pension Advisory Board

In addition to the Pensions Panel, the pension scheme is required to have in place a local Pension Advisory Board. The board will assist the fund in complying with all the legislative requirements, making sure the scheme is being effectively and efficiently governed and managed.
