Who runs the pension fund
The Highland Council Pension Fund is run by The Highland Council.
This means that The Highland Council is the "administering authority" in the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations.
The Council has set up the Highland Council Pensions Committee who act as trustees of the Fund to make decisions and take responsibility for management of the fund.
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.
The pension section at the Highland Council look after the day to day running of the fund.
The Payroll and Pensions Manager is Charlie MacCallum.
