Who runs the pension fund

The Pension Fund Committee's key responsibilities are:

  • The effective and prudent management of the Suffolk Pension Fund
  • The approval of the Fund's investment strategy and the appointment of the investment managers
  • The approval of the funding strategy following the triennial actuarial valuation and the determination of the employers contributions to the fund.
