Congratulations to all our 2020 winners. You can view the Scheme Services winners report here.

The Pensions and Investment Provider Awards celebrate the companies contributing to a better retirement for today's occupational pension savers.

Winners and those shortlisted for these prestigious awards, now in their 21st year, are picked because they have achieved outstanding performance, upheld the highest standards of service to their clients, and driven the innovation necessary to keep the industry moving forward.

Entries are heavily scrutinised by an experienced panel of pensions industry leaders, ensuring that the PIPAs are a mark of excellence informing the choices made by UK occupational schemes. This year, the winners of The Pensions and Investment Provider Awards will be revealed over two exclusive Pensions Expert supplements, which will be available in the August and September editions of Pensions Expert magazine.
