Are you a scheme trustee? Do you manage a pension fund? If so, would you be willing to help judge the UK Pensions Awards 2019?
Professional Pensions is looking for a number of pension managers and trustees to join the judging panel for the UK Pensions Awards 2019.
The judging process will allow judges to help recognise and reward excellence among the advisers, providers and investment managers that serve schemes.
It will also give judges the opportunity to both network with their peers and get a ‘behind-the-scenes' look at how an industry-wide awards process is run.
Judges will be asked to judge around six categories each and will receive submissions at the begining of February next year.
They will each score these submissions to come up with a shortlist for each of the categories below.
A judges' meeting will be then held on 5th March 2019 to decide the final winners.
The winners will be announced at the 22nd annual UK Pensions Awards, which will take place at London Hilton on Park Lane on Thursday 23 May, 2019.
All judges will be invited to attend the awards as guests of Professional Pensions.
If you are a senior manager within a scheme or a pension trustee and wish to put your name forward as a judge, please contact Professional Pensions editor-in-chief Jonathan Stapleton at [email protected] or 020 7484 9747 as soon as possible.
By improving their stewardship activity and collaborating together, schemes can reduce the burden on resources, says Lauren Peacock.
