The Wales Pension Partnership (WPP) was established in 2017. The WPP is a collaboration of the eight LGPS funds (Constituent Authorities) covering the whole of Wales and is one of eight national Local Government Pension pools.
We have a long, successful history of collaboration, including examples that pre-date the Government’s pooling initiative. We are proud of our unique identity as a Pool – our Constituent Authorities represent and span the entirety of Wales. Being democratically accountable means we provide the best of strong public sector governance and transparency.
Our operating model is designed to be flexible and deliver value for money. We appointed an external Operator and make use of external advisers to bring best of breed expertise to support the running of the Pool. The Operator is Link Fund Solutions and they have partnered with Russell Investments to manage the investments and assist in the reduction of investment management costs for all the Constituent Authorities.
We have a clear vision and are in control of the pace we take to ensure we meet our goals.
