The UK Pension Fund Investment Forum was established in September 1994 with the purpose of improving the quality of information available to pension funds leading to the development of more relevant and efficient processes and eventually, improved performance.
By bringing together pension fund representatives, both trustees and managers, with advisers and service providers, robust and objective discussions have become the norm. A key requirement for all non-pension fund members and speakers is that product or services selling is not permitted.
Regular monthly seminars are usually held in the City of London and take place over lunch at various livery halls including The Barber-Surgeons’ Hall.
There are two categories of membership, one made up of representatives of occupational and local authority pension funds (members currently account for over £270 billion of assets) and the other representatives from the pensions industry.

The Forum is advised by an Advisory Committee, comprising only pension fund representatives, who ensure that the topics being discussed are relevant and helpful.
