Whilst in 2017, we received a gold award from Investor in Customers for our administration services to clients, this is the first time all our services to trustees have been assessed. Our ability to create long-term client relationships based on meeting needs with tailored solutions, has been recognised with gold scores across each of the four principles - understanding customer needs, meeting customer needs, delighting customers and engendering loyalty.
“ We care about the individuality of our clients and our free thinking approach allows us to do the right thing for them, at all times. ”Marcus Whitehead

Investor in Customers is an independent customer experience agency who conduct rigorous benchmarking to ascertain the quality of customer service and relationships in order to award accreditations. By undertaking an external review and combining it with client, employee and management team feedback, IIC is able to uncover how customer service and satisfaction is delivered by an organisation.
Sandy Bryson, Director at IIC, said: “I’m delighted that Barnett Waddingham pension consultancy and administration services have achieved another Investor in Customers’ gold award recognising that they provide an exceptional customer experience to their clients. Not only that, their overall score has increased from their last assessment average score and the scores for each of the four principles from every participant group in the assessment: clients, staff, managers and IIC, were all gold!
This is a fantastic achievement and testament to all of the hard work they have been doing implementing the recommendations from their first assessment. And they will continue to improve over the next year!”
Marcus Whitehead, Managing Partner at Barnett Waddingham, said: “Being accredited the prestigious IIC gold award recognises the exceptional client experience we have created. Because we are independent, this achievement really demonstrates how we go the extra mile for our clients, operating with flexibility, agility and providing solutions tailored to their needs.
Through continued hard work and dedication, our employees are creating effective solutions for the individual client and this gold award result is a ringing endorsement that our free thinking guides our client experience. The detailed feedback from the survey will help us identify ways to further improve the service we offer and continue building on this success.”
