Who we are
The Pensions Board’s Investment team includes specialists in investment, operations and ethical and responsible investment. We are a fully integrated function, led by the Chief Investment Officer and the Director for Ethics and Engagement.

We operate three main separate pension schemes. For investment purposes, our assets are pooled to enable economies of scale and access to investment opportunities.
Our in-house Investment Team oversees our investments, ensuring the funds are ethically invested and well stewarded. Our objective is to be a leading pension fund on responsible investment matters
Our Board of Trustees ensures good governance, best practice adherence and that our institution’s ethos is reflected at a strategic level and through the team’s priorities.
