Regulation 3(4) (definition of “investment”) provides that the use of pension fund money for any purpose for which the local authority may borrow money shall count as an investment for the purposes of these Regulations prior to 1st April
2011, after which it will cease to count as an investment.
Regulation 5 (power to borrow) sets out the circumstances in which the administering authority may borrow money for the purposes of its pension fund and the rules applying to the repayment of any such borrowing.
Regulation 6 (separate bank account) provides that pension fund money must, by 1st April 2011, be kept in a separate bank account held by the administering authority for that purpose.
Other provisions provide for: general definitions (regulation 2), what counts as an investment (regulation 3), the sums which an administering authority must pay to and pay from its pension fund (regulation 4), the power to appoint an
investment manager including the terms of such appointment and the requirement to keep the performance of any such manager under review (regulations 7 to 10), general provisions concerning investments including the requirement to prepare and maintain an investment policy (regulation 11), the requirement to prepare, maintain and publish a statement of investment principles (regulation 12), the limits which apply to certain types of investments and the requirements which apply if such limits are to be increased (regulations 14 and 15) and the requirement to pay interest on fund money used by the administering authority (regulation 16).
