bfinance has been at the heart of the public pension fund market for over 10 years.
Ever since 2002, when we conducted our first public pension fund engagement for Torfaen County Council Pension fund we have been providing highly bespoke investment advice over a wide range of engagements for sophisticated pension fund investors around the world. In the UK, we have worked with 41 of the leading local government pension funds, representing in excess of 50% of total assets under management. Internationally, we have worked with over 70 public pension funds.
One of our key strengths in the public pensions area is our extensive track record of assisting public entities with their public procurement obligations. Over the past decade we have conducted nearly 200 customised public tenders including over a hundred for UK local authorities representing over $30billion of mandates.
Our clients particularly appreciate our extensive knowledge and experience in the area of public tenders enabling them to avoid the common pitfalls of the often complex public procurement process.
We guide our clients through the open and restricted routes of tendering, always ensuring equal-treatment, non-discrimination and full transparency of the manager selection process.
