Nick Greenwood, former manager of the £2.2bn (€2.5bn) Berkshire Pension Fund, died earlier this month.He ran the Berkshire fund – part of the UK’s Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) – for 11 years before leaving last year after it became part of the Local Pensions Partnership.During his tenure at Berkshire, he implemented an innovative investment strategy involving allocations to a range of alternative asset classes such as farmland and emerging market infrastructure.In 2017, the pension fund bought a 20% stake in specialist UK alternatives boutique Gresham House and became the cornerstone investor for the asset manager’s flagship British Strategic Investment Fund, which targets UK infrastructure and housing. In 2016, it invested £15m in a fund aimed at directing institutional capital into the commercialisation of UK university research, known as the British Innovation Fund . In 2009, the scheme became the first in the LGPS system to hedge its longevity risk, sealing a deal with Swiss Re covering 11,000 pensioners.last_img read more
