PP Investment Awards - Shortlists published

Jonathan Stapleton
clock

Here they are. The shortlists for the inaugural Professional Pensions Investment Awards (PPIA).

The Professional Pensions Investment Awards celebrate excellence among the asset managers who serve UK occupational pension schemes.

PPIA has been launched to recognise asset managers over a broad range of specialisms - and shine the spotlight on those whose achievements may not always be recognised by the more general UK Pensions Awards.

The awards process is unique within the industry - with the shortlist being drawn up in association with Aon Hewitt, one of the leading investment consultants in the market, highlighting those asset managers who have demonstrated both excellent performance and growth in assets under management.

Shortlisted entrants will now be asked to complete a questionnaire detailing how they differentiate themselves from their peers - detailing the product and client service innovations they have made over the 12 months to 30 June 2014. To find out more about the questionnaire or for queries about the awards process, please contact Professional Pensions editor Jonathan Stapleton at: [email protected].

The winners in each category will be decided by a distinguished panel of industry judges, the names of whom will be published over the coming weeks.

The awards will be presented at a lunchtime reception on the afternoon of Friday 28 November at Jumeirah Carlton Tower, London.
