PP Investment Awards 2016 - The winners

clock • 3 min read

Here they are - the winners of the Professional Pensions Investment Awards (PPIA) 2016

The winners of this year's awards - which celebrate excellence among the asset managers who serve UK occupational pension schemes - were announced at a lunchtime reception last Friday by leading comedian Sean Collins.

The PP Investment Awards process is unique within the industry - with the shortlist being drawn up in association with Aon Hewitt, highlighting those asset managers who have demonstrated excellent performance and relative growth in assets under management over the 12 months to 30 June 2016 as well as strong performance over the past three years.

Shortlisted entrants were then asked to complete an questionaire detailing how they differentiate themselves from their peers - detailing the product and client service innovations they made over the 12 months to 30 June 2016.

The winners in each category were decided by a distinguished panel of industry judges (see below).
