Council at its meeting in November 2017 agreed to change the Board structure and membership to improve the overall effectiveness and independence of the Board.

Additionally the Pension Board will help ensure that the London Borough of Hillingdon Pension Fund is managed and administered effectively and efficiently and complies with the code of practice on the governance and administration of public service pension schemes issued by the Pension Regulator.

The membership of the Board must be equally split between employer and scheme member representatives with relevant experience and the capacity to represent. Council has determined that membership shall be two employer and two employee representatives.
