SVSPS Employer Consultative Group
Established in April 2011, the Employer Consultative Group (ECG) was set up to involve participating employers in the operation and future running of the Scheme after the SVSPS Pensions Committee disbanded.
The ECG has three main functions: Scheme Funding, Investment Strategy and communicating with employers.
The ECG includes seven members nominated and elected by participating employers. In addition to the elected members, the ECG has the power to co-opt up to three additional members to fill skills gaps. Co-opted members do not have voting rights.
