We have been appointed as a preferred provider following a comprehensive tender process run by Norfolk County Council whose framework will be used to provide performance monitoring and reporting services to all 89 LGPS funds.
Pat Sharman, Managing Director for the UK branch of KAS BANK, said “We are very proud to have been chosen to be a trusted service provider for the LGPS.”
“We see ourselves as the governance partner for institutional investors and, more specifically, the independent governance partner of choice for UK pension schemes. Our growing list of long-term and trusted client relationships evidences this strategic partnership approach. The services which we will provide under this agreement align with our strategy of adding value to our clients through independent governance reporting.
“By providing independent performance measurement, we provide our clients with information that helps them with the governance of their scheme, engage in conversations with their service providers based on unbiased information and, where needed, execute decisions in the interest of all the members of the scheme.”
“We look forward to working with the LGPS funds and demonstrating our commitment to consistently delivering a high quality client-focused service.”
As the specialist provider of securities services to the UK Pension industry, we are trusted by clients to secure, protect and develop their assets. We provide high quality services to pension schemes of all sizes, with a particular focus on the small to medium-sized funds that have increasingly been under-serviced by other global custodians. We currently conduct performance measurement calculations for over 60 clients with a total of €110 billion of assets, the majority of which are pension funds.
