Local Pension Board

Pension Advisory Board (PAB)

Following the requirements of Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) Regulations laid in early 2015, the Fund established the Pension Advisory Board (PAB) to act as its Local Pension Board as set out in the Public Service Pension Act 2013.

The PAB’s purpose is to assist the Fund to secure legal compliance and effective governance in addition to acting as a “critical friend” to the Pension Strategy Board (PSB) and Investment Steering Committee (ISC). The PAB is not a decision making body.
