New signatories to the Code with effect from 21st May 2019 will be expected to complete the appropriate template within the CTI framework. The only exception to this is for private market managers based in the United States who may submit the ILPA template

CTI width=

Details of the CTI framework can be found on the CTI website The templates for this framework may be submitted in either MS Excel or machine readable formats. However if you provide in the later format you should ensure your LGPS client has the ability to process the file in an acceptable manner.

Existing signatories as at 21st May 2019 may continue to submit the LGPS template in MS Excel format for a period of up to 12 months but are encouraged to move to the CTI framework as soon as they are able.


The template lists a series of broad headings for reporting costs and expenses and in its initial form will concentrate on those areas which should already be available but may not have been supplied by asset managers either proactively or in a format easily useable by LGPS funds.

There are separate templates for segregated portfolio management (the ‘segregated manager’ tab on the above spreadsheet) and for pooled funds (see the ‘pooled fund’ tab on the above). Where a manager operating a segregated mandate invests in a pooled fund as part of that mandate, the reporting will be done via the asset manager template.

The LGPS template is for listed asset classes only and is valid for use solely by signatories to the Code on or before 21st May 2019 for a maximum 12 month period after which the CTI framework must be used.
