LA Forum is an independent public pension fund training provider, servicing Local Authority Pension Fund officers, trustees and elected members with a range of educational products. In addition to bespoke training seminars, we produce investment strategy opinion reports that go beyond the typical market analysis of third party reporters and analysts.
Our unique strength is uncovering the thoughts and views of the highest profile people in a particular industry and sharing these insights via training seminars and publications.
LA Forum's prime objective is to a provide a platform to Local Authority investment teams, exploring and examining a cross-section of views, therefore providing the opportunity for many contrary ideas to be expressed during the decision making process.
This open and informal approach allows the issues at the heart of the process to be raised, assesses why particular industry challenges persist, how emerging opportunities can be captured and what trends are to be expected in the future.
According to the asset class, our contributors are the industry’s finest. All commentary is independent of LA Forum, being put forward by a cross section of individuals working within the investment industry in response to LA Forum's research survey.
There are several formats which our contributors can support with e.g. providing unique commentary on a subject given to them, uploading video tutorials to our website, or participate in a training seminar/round table discussion to evolve existing and new ideas.
In all of the above scenarios, the end product is a highly valuable combination of ideas from forward thinking industry experts, which can support pension fund officers in solving the most challenging of problems faced during their decision making process.
The services LA Forum provides its clients are independent of any one company. However, we do look for commercial organisations to get involved, providing their opinions add distinct value to a reports theme.
This working partnership is 2 fold, providing the platform for sponsors to share their ideas in a way that adds real value, and helping clients to identify potential solutions to their individual challenges and opportunities.
