The Representative of the UN Secretary-General on the Investments Committee of the UNJSPF, Ms. Carolyn Boykin, also congratulated Adeosun on her appointment and welcomed her to the panel.

Boykin explained that the purpose of the investment of the UNJSPF was to secure the pension entitlements of the international civil servants who participate in the Fund.

“The fiduciary responsibility is to all parties concerned and it is the responsibility of the secretary-general to ensure that those investments are managed to preserve the capital of the Fund and to obtain a long-term real rate of investment return that is line with the actuarial assumptions, without jeopardising the capital of the Fund by taking excessive risks,” Boykin stated.

Adeosun, according to the statement, has accepted her appointment into the committee.

The UNJSPF is a Fund that provides pension, death, disability and the other related benefits for staff of the United Nations and the other organisations admitted to membership in the Fund.
