About us

Lothian Pension Fund administers the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) in Edinburgh and the Lothians. We’re a multi-employer scheme with over £8billion assets and 98% funded. We manage 84,000 members and 90 employers and are the second largest LGPS fund in Scotland.

Our investment team is unique in Scotland in holding FCA authorisation. We manage over 85% of assets in-house via internal equity and bond portfolios and infrastructure investment.
We established a regulated investment company providing resourcing, operational support, governance and deal execution for our private markets and gained FCA authorisation in 2015. This enables collaboration with other LGPS funds offering a clearing house service.
In March 2017, we became the first UK Local Government pension fund awarded accreditation for the Pensions Administration Standards Association and have held the Customer Service Excellence Award for the last 10 years.
