Wednesday, April 10, 2019

Botswana Public Officers Pension Fund

Botswana Pension Fund watchdog

The CEO of the BPOPF has recently met and engaged with the Botswana Pension Fund watchdog. The issues that they have highlighted in their article were discussed.

We have also been made aware of their terms of reference and how they were appointed by their members. As direct beneficiaries of the BPOPF, members have the right to be fully involved in the fund and to hold the management and the board accountable. In that regard therefore this is a body that the BPOPF welcomes and is available to engage with from time to time.

The BPOPF often issues press releases, holds press conferences, and carries articles on our website and social media platforms. We also have communication consultants who engage members across the country on issues such as retirement, and other issues that may affect them. In addition BPOPF staff members have appeared on local radio stations such as RB1, Duma FM and Gabz FM.

As a large pension fund and investor, the BPOPF works with various service providers and faces different challenges. The management and board are aware of these risks and are constantly reviewing policies and processes to manage them. We also work with the regulator as they review the fund periodically in line with their role.

We welcome the initiatives by the watchdog group and welcome any enquiries from our members either through our social media platforms or in any other manner such as in writing or via direct enquiries at our regional offices. We have offices in Gaborone, Maun, Francistown and Jwaneng. The contact details are on our website.
