The Devon Fund has a duty to achieve the best returns that it can at an acceptable level of risk. This will ensure that the scheme remains affordable to fund members and local taxpayers, and has the funds available to meet its responsibility to pay members’ pensions over the long term.
Within that parameter, the Fund also seeks to be a responsible owner of the assets in which it invests and seeks a sustainable future for our future pensioners. This includes engaging with companies on how they manage their businesses responsibly with regard to a range of issues, and how they are looking to transition their businesses to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
