LGPS Central Limited (LGPS Central) is an Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM) and an investment advisor, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
It was established to manage investment assets on behalf of eight Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) funds across the Midlands (Cheshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, West Midlands, and Worcestershire) (the Partner Funds). It is jointly owned on an equal-shares basis by the eight Partner Funds.
LGPS Central currently has approximately £45bn of assets under management, including £17bn in the LGPS Central Limited Authorised Contractual Scheme (the LGPSC ACS). It also provides consultancy and investment advisory services, to the Partner Funds.
Three of the LGPS Central’s Partner Funds have expressed interest in investing new monies in a pooled direct property fund and it has been agreed that such a fund will be set up as a sub-fund under a new authorised contractual scheme structure, to be known as the LGPS Central Property ACS ( the Property ACS).
The sub-fund will be called the LGPS Central UK Direct Property Fund (the Fund).
It is anticipated that the Fund will be launched by the end of 2021 with approximately £150million of investment of new money from the three Partner Funds. It is expected that over time this amount will grow (expected to reach approximately £500m in 7 years) and include cash investment from other Partner Funds.
LGPS Central will be the manager of the Property ACS and wishes to appoint a property and investment manager (the P and I Manager) to:
– manage, on an advisory basis, all of the assets of the Fund in accordance with the investment objective and investment policy of the Fund; and
– provide day-to-day property related services, such as rent reviews, lease renewals and dilapidations.
In addition, LGPS Central, in its capacity as an investment advisor may, at any time, also wish to appoint the P and I Manager as a property and investment manager in respect of Partner Fund’s existing UK direct property portfolio (a Legacy Portfolio) with a view to winding down the Legacy Portfolio and reinvesting the proceeds into the Fund.
Such an appointment would be a delegation from LGPS Central of the investment advisory services it has been appointed to provide to the Partner Fund in respect of a Legacy Portfolio. Therefore, the P and I Manager will only be appointed in respect of a Legacy Portfolio where LGPSC is appointed by the Partner Fund. No guarantees are given by LGPC Central to tenderers in respect of Legacy Portfolios.
The appointment of the P and I Manager in respect of the above will be by way of a Master Property and Investment Management Agreement (the P and IMA).
The P and IMA will be for an initial term of seven years with the option for LGPS Central to extend for a further three years.
