Statement from the Provost regarding College responses to the UUK/USS pensions survey

With regard to the press interest in the responses of Oxbridge Colleges to the UUK/USS pensions survey on the preferred attitude to risk, I am authorised to make the following statement on behalf of King’s College: 

The position expressed by the Bursar of King’s College in response to the UUK/USS survey was not, and should not have been taken as, the considered view of the College. This was made clear by the Bursar in his response, as no opportunity for consultation had been possible. The views of many Fellows lean in a contrary direction.
