About us

The LA Retirement Fund has been helping local government permanent employees, contract and part-time employees save for the retirement they deserve for more than 70 years. This reliable fund has a proud history of strong investment returns that steadily grow the savings of its many active members and the financially sound pensioner pool. However, this fund is far more than just a way for local government employees and councillors to save towards their retirement. It’s a committed investment partner, working with you to deliver all the benefits, security and growth you want, to one day enjoy the retirement you desire. A partner that understands you, and knows exactly how to support you throughout your career, and beyond……

Our Vision:

To provide the best possible retirement outcome for all our members, retirees and pensioners.

Our Mission:

The Fund is a trusted financial and investment partner to our members, retirees and pensioners, helping them to achieve positive retirement outcomes through:

  • Innovative, cost-effective and risk-managed retirement investments that grow their savings, thereby maximising their chances that they will receive the lifelong pension income they need.
  • Ethical retirement fund management, good governance and responsible investment that protects the Fund from external factors that could negatively impact members’ retirement savings.
  • Clear communication and ongoing education that helps members to keep their retirement journey on track.
  • Affordable risk cover, preservation and at-retirement solutions that enable financial security for members, retirees, pensioners and their loved ones.
