The 2016 PPIA awards process has been launched. Find out more about this year's accolades here...
The Professional Pensions Investment Awards celebrate excellence among the asset managers who serve UK workplace pension schemes.
The awards, now in their third year, 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 leading investment consultancy Aon Hewitt.
The shortlist is based on both performance and relative growth in assets under management over the 12 months to 30 June 2016.
However, we recognise the need for consistent performance so entrants will only be shortlisted if they demonstrate both excellent performance over the 12 months to 30 June 2016 AND strong performance over a three year time period.
The full shortlists will be published later this month.
Shortlisted entrants will then asked to complete an entry 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 2016.
The winners in each category will then be decided by a distinguished panel of industry judges, which will be announced over the coming weeks.
The winners will be announced at an awards lunch on 18th November at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge, London.
