A Word From The CEO

Talofa and welcome to the Tuvalu National Provident Fund (TNPF) Website. I am pleased that you have taken the time to visit our website and I trust it will give you a better understanding of the various benefits and services offered by TNPF to its members.

Currently, we have over 4,000 active members and around 95 employers are actively making contributions on behalf of their members. TNPF is fully owned by its members and as the largest financial institution in the country today, there will always be pressure on Management to continuously improve the level of service that we provide to our members. To ensure we operate as a healthy and reliable financial institution, we have made it a firm commitment to ensure the Fund is managed in a professional, accountable and transparent manner.

This website provides a great platform by which we are able to connect with our members as responding effectively to the needs of our members and creating an enabling environment that supports the ongoing needs of our member is priority to all of us at TNPF. We are pleased that this website will take us a step further in extending to our members our complete services.

TNPF has just launched its new Logo. The change in Logo signals a change to the Fund’s brand, identity and corporate culture as it continues to improve its services to all its stakeholders. The launch of the new TNPF Logo is timely as the Fund currently undergoes major reforms to its minimum retirement age and all benefits and services it offers to its members. The reforms will lead to better services for all members of the Fund.     

It is my sincere hope that the cooperation between the key stakeholders of the Fund (Government, Employers and Employees) and all members continues to proper.

Funafuti Lagoon Hotel


The Fund, through its subsidiary private company - TNPF Investment Holdings Ltd t/a Funafuti Lagoon Hotel (FLH) that was incorporated in late 2016, took over (through a Concession Agreement) the assets of a 20 bedroom Hotel with associated dining and function facilities that were owned by the Vaiaku Lagi Hotel (VLH), which is a public enterprise owned by the Government of Tuvalu. 

The Fund and the Government of Tuvalu, through the terms of the said Concession Agreement, agreed that they will work together to further upgrade the hotel assets conditions/standards and improve operational processes to bring direct and indirect benefits to Tuvalu through this investment. Both also agreed that they will work together to lead and empower the private sector to invest in the Tourism sector through a Tourism concept paper that was developed by the Fund.
