MHP takes on Local Pensions Partnership brief

Local Pensions Partnership has appointed MHP Communications as its comms adviser as the partnership formally moves towards a new “pooled” structure.

LPP is an asset and liability management collaboration between the Lancashire County Pension Fund and the London Pensions Fund Authority.

MHP will provide a comprehensive media and public relations strategy, as well as regulatory and political insight and strategic support, at a time when the sector goes through major reform.

Joshua Peck (pictured), MD of corporate affairs at MHP, said: “Both LPFA and LCPF have excellent reputations as leading local government pensions providers and we are very much looking forward to the opportunity of building on these strong foundations with our best-in-sector media and political expertise as the partnership extends its public affairs work.”

Bart Nash, head of communications and public affairs at Local Pensions Partnership, said: “As we moved forward in creating the new LGPS asset and liability management partnership, we recognised the support a full service communications partner could provide. MHP not only meets those requirements but brings a team approach that we felt reflected our partnership model.”

Andrew Fleming, director of financial services at MHP, added: “As the first pension schemes to create an ALM partnership which includes an FCA authorised operator for the pooling and management of assets, LPP is going through an exciting time of evolution, changing the shape of the UK pensions market. As the leading adviser to Defined Benefit pension schemes in the UK, MHP has advised many of the country’s largest schemes and we are relishing the opportunity to work with LPP at the forefront of innovation in the market.”
