Charlotte O'Leary, CEO of Pensions for Purpose commented that:
"At no time has there been a greater impetus for getting investment into regions around the UK, bringing the economic, social and environmental agendas together. What we have lacked is a concerted effort by central government, local authorities, investors, asset managers and supply of on-the-ground opportunities. This white paper paves the way for LGPS to consider the important benefits of investing with a place-based lens and comes at the same time as the investment industry is itself recognising the significant opportunities associated with positive social and environmental impact investing.”
