In his keynote speech to the 15th annual Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) Governance Conference, Martin Clarke considered some of the challenges facing public service schemes and in the particular the LGPS. There are many issues to deal with, but fortunately, as GAD’s review of the actuarial valuations of funds as at 31 March 2016 in September 2018 highlighted, the LGPS is in good financial shape at the latest valuation. Hence there is much to be proud of and to build on in the future.
