Wiltshire Pension Fund are delighted to be part of this first box set in the series along with West Midlands Pension Fund, Trafalgar House, TPT Retirement Solutions and Connected Asset Management.
We recognise the huge importance of investing in socially and environmentally beneficial assets, with a goal of protecting the investments from climate change risk, and safeguarding the financial future of the Fund.
The case studies selected to feature in the film directly show how the fund invests in socially beneficial investments, as well as sustainable, low-carbon assets, which following a recent survey to our members was something they also wanted to see.
Our team were delighted to have the opportunity to not only be a part of this project, but also have the opportunity to engage with our investors, gaining a more detailed insight into these investment portfolios.
Whether it's a solar farm or an affordable housing development, it's the fund's firm belief that investing in positive social and environmental assets can be done in conjunction with achieving a competitive financial return. Wiltshire Pension Fund wants their members to feel proud that their contributions are helping to deliver positive change for future generations and for the planet.
What is it all about?
With the market value of pension funds reaching £2.5 trillion in March 2022, while gross assets excluding derivatives was £3.0 trillion*, this huge industry is set within a complex regulatory environmentand a changing investment landscape.
By working in partnership with the PMI, this project is going to breakdown the barriers around pensions, bring greater awareness of the great career opportunities available, as well as support the PMI members and wider network to communicate the positive impact pensions can have on society, the environment and the economy as a whole, with a particular focus on ESG in pensions.
The series consists of a number of short-form documentary films,shot around the country, featuring human-interest stories from those at the front line of this powerful sector aiming to engage and celebrate on a national scale.'
