Public sector organisations, like a UK local authority, are subject to investment rules to safeguard the public funds they are entrusted with. Eg a certain minimum proportion has to be invested in very safe ways. The remainder can be invested in more risky ways ie into non-approved funds.
I don’t think the syllabus requires any more knowledge that – certainly not the provisions of The Local Government Act 2003, a very piece of UK law. The Kaplan syllabus make no reference to this act and I think the question has got into the bank by mistake.
