Five of the largest UK local authority funds have committed £152m (€190m) to social impact investing after a year-long manager search.The pension funds, which jointly have around £30bn in investible assets, joined forces in 2013 as a means to invest for both financial returns and positive economic impact.The funds said the seed investments showed that social impact investing and financing local initiatives could align with a pension fund’s fiduciary duty.Through the Local Authority Pension Fund Forum (LAPFF), the schemes founded their initiative from a white paper that identified challenges and opportunities in impact investing. After 28 asset managers responded to a request for submissions, the funds have now allocated funds accordingly.Greater Manchester Pension Fund committed one-third of the total allocation, half of which was placed in a property fund.The other pension funds – West Midlands, East Riding, West Yorkshire, Merseyside and South Yorkshire – also committed to the property fund but in varying amounts.All the investors, bar East Riding and West Midlands, also committed to an industrial lending fund.Other areas of social impact investing include social impact bonds and social sector investments.The funds’ joint group, Investing 4 Growth, said impact investing brought new risks that needed to be overcome, such as a lack of track record, liquidity, presence of other investors and inexperience.Issues were also raised regarding a conflict between the pension funds’ investments, and the activities of their sponsoring local councils.Councillor Kieran Quinn, who chairs Investors 4 Growth, said that while the process of setting up the investment group had been challenging, movement forward should demonstrate that fiduciary responsibility can be aligned with delivering positive outcomes for communities.“Impact investing for pension funds is a new area of activity, and I hope that, having established the investment potential, other funds will join us in seeking further opportunities,” he said. He said that, even though the investments represented unfamiliar territory, and new asset managers brought their own risks, those risks could be mitigated to meet a fund’s expectations.“As we gain experience and see successful opportunities mature, I am confident these factors can be effectively managed,” he said.
The student who died in the Gamma Epsilon Omega fraternity house last week has been identified as 19-year-old Joseph Paek, a senior who was majoring in creative writing.The cause of death was ruled a suicide by multiple stab wounds, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner. Police stated the night his body was found that they did not believe his death was a result of academic stress or hazing, while the coroner’s report said that Paek suffered from depression. Paek joined Gamma Epsilon Omega fraternity, the first Asian-interest fraternity in Southern California, in the fall of 2015 and held the position of Brotherhood Chair this semester. He was originally from Los Angeles, according to the fraternity’s website.Paek was found unconscious when the residents of the fraternity house went to check his room after becoming concerned that he had not been seen since 2 a.m. on Thursday. The death was reported at approximately 4:35 p.m. after paramedics arrived, followed by Department of Public Safety and the Los Angeles Police Department. LAPD handled the investigation into Paek’s death before handing it over to the Coroner’s Office. The University administration and the Gamma Epsilon Omega fraternity did not respond to requests for comment by press time.
