UK - The Falkirk and the City of London pension funds have joined the Local Authority Pension Fund Forum (LAPFF).
The forum has 48 members representing 50% of the Local Government Pension Sscheme (LGPS) by number and more than 75% when measured by assets under management.
Ian Greenwood, spokesman for the West Yorkshire Pension Fund, who was elected as chair of the forum in January, said: "During the past year we have recruited 10 new member funds - a truly remarkable achievement - and one which serves to improve our effectiveness very significantly.
"We can now rightfully claim to be a leading voice on the subject of corporate governance and CSR for the LGPS, representing as we do, all parts of the UK and all types of local authority funds."
These latest funds follow in the footsteps of the Haringey and Waltham Forest pension funds which joined the LAPFF in February.
