“Three major London pensions organisations, with combined assets under management of nearly £57 billion, are working together to create a London-focused investment fund. Three major London pensions organisations, with combined assets under management of nearly £57 billion, are working together to create a London-focused investment fund. The fund aims to invest in the Capital, focusing on developing housing and infrastructure, both of which will improve the quality of life for London communities.
Local Pensions Partnership Ltd (LPP), the London Collective Investment Vehicle Ltd (LCIV) and the London Pensions Fund Authority (LPFA) are expecting to jointly target an allocation of several hundred million pounds to this new investment strategy, which is planned to launch later in 2020.
The London Fund’s portfolio will focus on investments in the City of London, the 32 London boroughs and their immediate surrounds, in assets such as residential property – specifically build-to-rent – and affordable housing, community regeneration projects and infrastructure, including digital infrastructure and clean energy.
Each of these assets will be selected to provide sustainable, long-term and risk-adjusted value to the pension scheme members, while creating a ‘double bottom line’ by making a positive contribution to social and environmental issues in the area. The fund, which will have a closed-ended structure, will be managed in partnership between LPP Investments Ltd (LPPI) and LCIV. By pooling their resources, LPPI and LCIV expect to have access to a greater range of investment opportunities for The London Fund than would be available to either entity acting alone.”
