The London Pensions Fund Authority (LPFA) has appointed Robert Branagh as its new Managing Director.

Branagh, on behalf of the Board, will manage relationships with all key stakeholders to ensure LPFA’s responsibilities and obligations are fulfilled and delivered to the highest standard.

Robert is the current president of the Pensions Management Institute and has an impressive career with over 30 years’ experience working in UK pensions in both the private and public sectors.

Speaking on the appointment, LPFA Chairman, Sir Merrick Cockell, says: “I am very pleased to welcome Robert to LPFA. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience. This is an exciting time to join LPFA and the Board and I look forward to working with Robert as LPFA continues to move forward.

Branagh is replacing Mike Allen, who is retiring after 36 years of service in pensions and has been with LPFA since its inception in 1990.

“I would like to thank Mike Allen for his contribution and dedication to LPFA; he joined the day we were formed. Mike has been instrumental in driving LPFA’s continuing success and will be greatly missed.”

Branagh says: “I am delighted to join LPFA and I welcome the challenges ahead. This is an interesting time for the industry and I am eager to explore new opportunities to work with employers so that we are delivering an improved and stable funding level, and a sustainable pension for our members.”
