LGPS Central publishes on its website:
“LGPS Central Limited has launched its All World Equity Climate Multi Factor Fund, bringing together £2.1bn of Partner Fund assets under management.
The local authority pension funds that will initially invest in the new LGPS Central Limited sub fund on launch are West Midlands Pensions Fund (WMPF) and Cheshire Pension Fund.
The All World Equity Climate Multi Factor Fund tracks the FTSE All-World Climate Balanced Comprehensive Factor Index, which incorporates three key climate change considerations; carbon emissions, fossil fuel reserves and green revenues.
The 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.”
