UNISON Scotland Pension Newsletter No.60 May 2021 

thumbnail of Scot Pensions bulletin 60 – May 2021UNISON call for One Pension Fund for Local Government in Scotland:

“a single fund for Scotland could save £100m a year, according to Lothian Pension Fund by getting economies of scale, bringing some investment management inhouse, and exposing the vast hidden fees which are charged at every opportunity. A bigger single fund could also improve the “Environment, Social and Governance” (ESG) of investments, helping to drop fossil fuel investments and invest more ethically. It could even help more local investment using inhouse expertise.”

We can do better and branches will continue to inform and lobby politicians for change.
