Local authorities


At Royal London Asset Management (RLAM) we have considerable expertise in working with local authorities. We currently manage in excess of £3.6bn on behalf of 47 local authorities, including 14 Local Government Pensions Schemes (LGPS) funds and 33 local authority treasury clients.*

LGPS Funds

We have been investing for LGPS fund clients since 1991 and over this period we have developed a very broad understanding of their unique requirements. We manage assets across a range of strategies including:

  • Fixed income
  • Sustainable
  • Multi asset
  • Property

Local Authority Treasury

We manage a broad range of cash and short dated bond fund for council’s treasury assets. We understand that local authority treasury departments are under considerable pressure to meet income and return objectives, whilst maintaining security and liquidity.  Our funds can help meet these objectives, whilst alleviating some of the issues of restricted counterparty lists, bail in risk and low yields.  Our strategies for these assets include:

  • Cash plus solutions
  • Short duration bonds
  • Ethical and socially responsible investment
  • Property
