The Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) funds of Lothian, Falkirk and Fife have appointed three independent advisers to their joint investment strategy panel (JISP).
Kames Capital head of multi-asset dealing treasury and implementation governance Kirstie MacGillivray and former Aberdeen Standard deputy head of equities Stan Pearson join the panel for the first time.
Meanwhile, former Kames Capital head of multi-asset investing Scott Jamieson has been reappointed, having served on the panel since 2012.
All three will serve for a maximum term of three years alongside senior officers from the LGPS funds.
The panel advises the three administering authorities on implementation of their respective investment strategies, which are agreed by their individual pension committees.
JISP chairwoman and Fife Council head of finance Elaine Muir said: "We're delighted to announce the appointment of Kirstie and Stan as new members of JISP and the reappointment of Scott as an existing member. We were impressed by the calibre of candidates we met during the selection process and, in Kirstie, Stan and Scott, we have an ideal blend of skills and experience to cover our needs for macro, equities and governance fields.
"I look forward to working with the new advisers as we make progress with our collaboration that accounts for some £14bn of assets under management held on behalf of members of the LGPS in Scotland."
