Pension Fund Committee
The Pension Fund Committee's principal aim is to carry out the functions of Flintshire County Council as the Scheme Manager and Administering Authority for the Clwyd Pension Fund in accordance with LGPS legislation.
The members on the Clwyd Pension Fund Committee are not trustees of the Fund, however, they do have a duty of care which is analogous to the responsibilities of trustees in the private sector and they could be more accurately described as ‘quasi trustees’. The management of the Clwyd Pension Fund is Non-Political.
The Committee's specific roles as outlined in the Council's Constitution are shown in Appendix B of the Fund’s Governance Policy Statement. The Committee may also delegate a limited range of its functions to one or more officers of Flintshire County Council.
No matters relating to Flintshire County Council's responsibilities as an employer participating within the Clwyd Pension Fund are delegated to the Pension Fund Committee.
The Pension Fund Committee meets at least quarterly and is composed of nine members as follows:
- Five Councillors of Flintshire County Council determined by the Council, and
- Four co-opted members comprising of:
- One Councillor of Wrexham County Borough Council, determined by that Council.
- One Councillor of Denbighshire County Council, determined by that Council.
- One Representative of the other Scheme Employers (not admission bodies) in the Clwyd Pension Fund as defined by Schedule 2 of the Local Government Pension Scheme 2013, as amended from time to time, appointed in accordance with procedures agreed by the Chief Executive in consultation with the members of the Pension Fund Advisory Panel.
- One Representative of the scheme members of the Clwyd Pension Fund, appointed in accordance with procedures agreed by the Chief Executive in consultation with the members of the Pension Fund Advisory Panel.
All members have equal voting rights.
