Edmund Truell, a city financier, recommends a similar strategy of creating a handful of “pension superfunds”. He transformed the London Pension Fund Authority, which manages the pensions of about 50,000 current and former city employees, hooking it up with the Lancashire County Pension Fund to create a £10bn commonly managed scheme.
