Who runs the pension fund
The Shetland Islands Council Pension Fund is administered by Shetland Islands Council.
This means that Shetland Islands Council is the "administering authority" as defined by the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations.
Shetland Islands Council has established a Pensions Committee and a Pensions Board. The Pensions Committee makes decisions and takes responsibility for management of the fund. The Pensions Board ensures that the scheme is being effectively governed and managed.
Administering authorities have to act in the interests of all employers, members and their dependants within the fund. The role of the administering authority is very similar to that of a trustee.
