London CIV is celebrating after winning the Public Pension Scheme Below €15 Billion trophy at the Chief Investment Officer Innovation Awards last week.

The prestigious awards recognise the best new thinking in risk management, asset allocation, portfolio construction and securities selection, and bring together top asset owners, managers and service providers.

Hugh Grover, Chief Executive of London CIV, said: “We’re really pleased to receive this award as recognition of what we have achieved as the first fully authorised and regulated investment management company set up by local government, for local government the UK. “This award reflects the hard work the London CIV team has been putting in to drive greater collaboration across the local government pensions sector in the capital and open new sub-funds covering the full spectrum of asset classes to meet the needs of the boroughs.”

In the Public Pension Scheme Below €15 Billion category, London CIV was up against pension funds from the Environment Agency and Surrey County Council as well as the Local Pensions Partnership.
