Brunel Pension Partnership is one of eight Local Government Pension Scheme Pools in the UK, bringing together close to £30 billion of investments from likeminded funds. The pooling project was announced by the UK Government in the 2015 summer budget. Since then, the various pools have been working hard to set up and launch various funds of all asset classes to accommodate the investments.

Local government pooling transitions are unique in their complexity, demanding forensic attention to detail and significant coordination to ensure multiple stakeholders are aligned in terms of their timing and investment objectives across a broad spectrum of asset classes.


Macquarie Portfolio Solutions developed a deep understanding of Brunel’s unique requirements, designing innovative solutions to help their underlying clients analyse, plan, manage, execute, settle and report on aspects of change in their investment structure, portfolio or strategy. With lengthy planning and implementation phases, often covering periods of heightened market volatility, our risk management techniques have been critical to the successful delivery of these projects.


"Macquarie was an excellent choice from a competitive tender process for our upcoming transitions. Having partnered with them extensively, they have become a trusted transition partner for our clients. Macquarie has a sophisticated transition platform and highly experienced team that we’re pleased to be able to offer our clients."
