Cheshire Pension Fund is committed to promoting the highest standards of corporate governance. The Fund adopts a policy of positive engagement with the companies in which it invests and believes that the greatest impact on company behaviour can be achieved when working together with others.
The Fund is an active member of the Local Authority Pension Fund Forum (LAPFF) which exists to promote the investment interests of local authority pension funds and to maximise their influence as shareholders. LAPFF promotes corporate social responsibility and high standards of corporate governance amongst the companies in which they invest.
Further information on the work undertaken by LAPFF is provided in quarterly engagement reports and on the LAPFF website.
