The National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) has announced the creation of the Central London Group following the merger of the West London and City & Eastern groups. The proposal, which was passed unanimously at the respective EGM and AGM earlier this year, will ensure a stronger group for the future.
David Astley, Chairman of the Central London Group, said:
“The NAPF has provided a thriving platform for local members to pool and share ideas for many years, but over time the City & Eastern and West London groups have shifted locations and some memberships have overlapped. The Committees of both groups felt unanimously that merging the two groups would create a stronger group.”
Ruston Smith, Chairman, NAPF, said:
“NAPF Local Groups represent an important voice in the regions, and provide a focus for local activities, networking and keeping up to date with the latest developments. It’s vital that we ensure these groups continue to really meet members’ needs and, we believe, this merger which creates a strong Central London Group will help do this. I look forward to the significant contribution this group will make and to listening to their views.”
