Room 151 has published an interview with David Vickers, in which the Brunel CIO responded to questions on pooling’s next phase, on progress in infrastructure investment, and on potential government mandates for LGPS pools.
“We have spoken to the government and said: ‘if you want more money in infrastructure, then invite us to the table’. We wrote to former Minister for Investment Lord Grimstone, and to Boris Johnson [when he was prime minister], and I’ve had meetings with the Office for Investment, saying: ‘show me the deals you have, and then I can show you our commitment’. But I can’t commit a number to an unknown project,” said Vickers.
