Here they are. The finalist lists for the inaugural Professional Pensions Rising Star Awards...
The Rising Star Awards aim to celebrate the emerging talent in pensions - recognising and identifying the sector's future leaders as well as shining the spotlight on the organisations and individuals that are helping develop and foster new talent in the industry.
Professional Pensions has had an exceptional response to these awards. Over 400 organisations and individuals were nominated for the Rising Star Awards and we received a total of 260 completed entry forms - with some categories having more than 100 entries.
The entries have been assessed by our panel of eminent judges and the winners will be announced at a gala dinner held on 27 March at London's newest superclub, Proud Embankment.
