Past Episodes

In 2019, LGC launched its Investment Series podcast, intended to catch you up on all the goings on at our investment events and featuring key figures in the local government pensions world. We kicked off at LGC Pension Insight Symposium in 2019, and continued into early 2020.

The series took a break during the pandemic, LGC's digital content instead being delivered via our webinars and virtual events.

It's back with a bang in 2022, though, with our first new episode featuring the sector legend, Jeff Houston who has recently retired from his LGA and LGPSAB roles.  Jeff spoke at the LGC Investment Seminar 2022 at Carden Park in Cheshire.

Listen to Jeff's episode and the other episodes in the series, below:
