Celebrating excellence in defined contribution

Congratulations to everyone who was short-listed for the DC Awards 2017, and a huge well done to all of our winners.

Each year the exceptional quality of the DC Awards entries makes judging increasingly difficult, and I would like to extend a big thank you to all of our judges who so generously give their time, and bring a real degree of rigour to the judging process.

Events like this simply would not happen without the support of our sponsors and I thank them for their involvement and for helping to make the evening so memorable.

As the DC pensions landscape continues to change and grow, with new demands and challenges each year, Pensions Insight are proud to be able to recognise the achievements of both schemes and providers and we look forward to celebrating your new successes at the DC Awards 2018.
