Spotlight on Social

Spotlight on Social  2024 Tile

At Wiltshire Pension Fund we are passionate about responsible investment. Our goal is to earn sufficient returns to pay the pensions as they fall due, and to support our employers by keeping their contribution rates as stable and affordable as possible.

Responsible investment is an important tool in protecting our assets, boosting returns, and ensuring a sustainable financial future for our Fund. 

As part of our approach, we identify important Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors to focus on. These are the factors which we believe are the most financially significant, and where we most need to manage our risks and/or see a strong investment opportunity.

Social issues are even more important to the younger demographic. In a recent survey where we focussed on the younger members of the scheme (<30 years old), we were fascinated to learn that equality, diversity and inclusion and broader social issues were considered even more important than climate change (which came in a close third)! It was this finding that inspired us to produce this Spotlight on Social report.

We hope you enjoy reading more about these themes and their impact on our investment portfolios!
