The £2m Northern Ireland Assembly pensions scheme has put out to tender for an additional voluntary contributions (AVC) provider.
The Belfast-based fund is receiving applications until May 11. The AVC plan will operate for concurrent members alongside its existing final salary scheme - established by former-Northern Ireland secretary Peter Mandelson in May 2000.
The active balanced brief is currently managed by Royal London Asset Management who was appointed at the end of February.
The 108-member scheme expects to finalise a decision by the beginning of June, and is advised by the Government Actuary's department.
