Local Authorities

Understanding your needs

We are one of the largest active managers in the UK local authority pension fund market. Nearly a third of our assets in the UK relate to local authorities.

We have been managing assets on behalf of local authorities since the 1950s. Over this time we have developed a strong relationship with the public sector and its specific requirements and have many long-standing local authority clients. Our experience of over half a century has enabled us to build a reputation for excellence in the provision of investment management in a variety of asset classes.

Supporting your events

We demonstrate our commitment to local authorities through the events we attend, sponsor or organise ourselves. These include the PLSA annual conference, the LGC Investment Summit and free investment training courses for investment panel members.

Our approach to responsible ownership

UBS Asset Management's stewardship policy is our commitment to act as good stewards of assets held and managed on behalf of our clients. We recognise that clients expect us to ensure the alignment of our approach with their own investment beliefs, policies and guidelines. We seek to be active shareholders by encouraging good governance and a high standard of corporate practices.
