Newton has a long history of working in partnership with local authorities, and has been managing local authority mandates since 1994.
Local authorities are experiencing a period of great change, as local government pension schemes collaborate to pool assets and deliver improved outcomes for their members. We are fully supportive of the new pooling arrangements, and are an active manager in one of the UK’s premier pools, as well as working together with other pools in order to bring our expertise to the industry. We have local government pension scheme clients across a number of different pools, which helps us stay attuned to the requirements and developments of this area.
We have investment capabilities in actively managed equity and absolute-return strategies. We have also recently introduced a suite of sustainable investment products to address the growing desire to put environmental, social and governance issues at the core of an investment strategy.
