LGPS Central Limited

Our Company

LGPS Central Limited manages the pooled assets of eight Midlands-based local government pension schemes.

With combined assets of approximately £45bn, and representing the retirement savings of around 1 million scheme members across over 2,000 employers, LGPS Central Limited’s Partner Funds are;

Cheshire Pension Fund, Derbyshire Pension Fund, Leicestershire Pension Fund, Nottinghamshire Pension Fund, Shropshire Pension Fund, Staffordshire Pension Fund, West Midlands Pension Fund, and Worcestershire Pension Fund.

LGPS Central Limited is owned equally by all eight of its Partner Funds and is dedicated to the management of local government pension assets. The aim of the Company is to use the combined buying power of its Partner Funds to reduce costs, improve investment returns and widen the range of available asset classes for investment – all for the benefit of local government pensioners, employees and employers.
