Here they are - the winners of the inaugural Professional Pensions Rising Star Awards...

The awards 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 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.

This year's accolades were presented at a gala dinner at Proud Embankment in London last night by comedian Rhys James.
