wind farm In December 2009, the Strathclyde Pension Fund Committee agreed an initial governance structure for a New Opportunities Portfolio.

Investments are made on an opportunistic basis in assets for which there is an attractive investment case but to which the current investment management structure does not provide access.

Each of the investments is also likely to have some positive impact beyond the investment returns which are its first priority.

In November 2015 we published a brochure to re-launch our Direct Investment Portfolio (previously called the New Opportunities Portfolio).

More information on individual investments and their performance can be found in the Strathclyde Pension Fund Committee's papers or in our Alternative assets schedule.
