Why choose BlackRock?

Detailed understanding of LGPS requirements

We understand the regulatory environment in which LGPS funds must live. We design solutions that are specifically built to meet those requirements whether related to the use of derivatives or reporting on voting rights.

Commitment to education and training

We hold a variety of dedicated local authority events throughout the year, where we seek to share our insights to broaden our clients’ knowledge. These include conferences, smaller training sessions and online training. We also provide free training to Investment Panel members on a wide variety of topics to educate and inform our clients on key investment issues facing local authority pension funds. These are complemented by our ‘Local Authority Currents’ quarterly publication which provides regular articles and thought pieces.

Risk Warnings

 

Capital at risk. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and are not guaranteed. Investors may not get back the amount originally invested.

 

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of current or future results and should not be the sole factor of consideration when selecting a product or strategy.

 

Changes in the rates of exchange between currencies may cause the value of investments to diminish or increase. Fluctuation may be particularly marked in the case of a higher volatility fund and the value of an investment may fall suddenly and substantially. Levels and basis of taxation may change from time to time.
