How we invest your money

At LGS, we believe that using a responsible investment approach helps to manage the risks of investing and delivers stronger long-term returns for our members.

Putting members first in everything we do is our core value, so when it comes to investing your money we take every care, so you can feel confident about where your money is invested.

Some of the ways we do this include:

Responsible investment

We believe companies that manage their environmental, social and governance risks deliver more sustainable returns for our members and help to benefit society at large.

We actively seek out companies that undertake positive activities and limit investments in certain industries, such as gambling, tobacco and armaments. We also have a well-developed sustainability program across the properties we own.

Active ownership

We work with companies in which we invest to improve their environmental, social and governance practices, engaging with board members and executives and voting at company meetings. Our responsible investment approach means we can demand greater accountability from the companies we invest in.

Risk management

At LGS, we manage risks for our members in a number of ways:

  • Closely analysing environmental, social and governance risks of potential investments – for example climate change or health and safety risks.
  • Diversifying investments across companies, sectors and asset classes to spread risks within our portfolios.
  • Working closely with our Board’s Risk Committee and Audit and Compliance Committee, complemented by an in-house Governance team to ensure our policies and practices comply with all superannuation legislation and regulations.

Ensuring that our members’ retirement savings are safe and secure is our number one priority.
