PP Investment Awards 2020 - Shortlists published

Professional Pensions
clock • 4 min read

Here they are… The shortlists for this year's Professional Pensions Investment Awards.

The Professional Pensions Investment Awards celebrate excellence among the asset managers who serve UK occupational pension schemes.

The awards, now in their seventh 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 Aon, one of the leading investment consultants in the market - highlighting those asset managers who have demonstrated excellent performance, and is broadly based on performance over the 12 months to 30 June 2020.

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 2020 AND strong performance over a three-year time period.

Shortlisted entrants are now being asked to complete a questionnaire to demonstrate how they differentiate themselves from their peers ­and detail their key achievements over what has been a challenging 12 months for the economy.

To access the questionnaire, please visit: www.investmentawards.co.uk.

Once you register on this site, you will be sent a guidance pack to help you complete your entry.

For queries about the questionnaire and the next stage of the judging process, please contact awards co-ordinator Ellie Harris at [email protected].

For queries about the awards process, please contact Professional Pensions editor Jonathan Stapleton at [email protected].

The winners in each category will be decided by a distinguished panel of industry judges, which will be finalised over the coming weeks.

The awards will be announced at a presentation towards the end of the year.

Further information about the awards can be found here: www.investmentawards.co.uk.
