PP Investment Awards 2014 - The Winners

clock

Here they are - the winners of the inaugural Professional Pensions Investment Awards (PPIA).

The awards were presented at a lunch event at London's Jumeirah Carlton Hotel on Friday 28th November by top comedienne Lucy Porter.

The PPIA 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 were then asked to complete a questionnaire detailing how they differentiated themselves from their peers - detailing the product and client service innovations had made over the 12 months to 30 June 2014.

The winners in each category were then decided by a distinguished panel of industry judges.
