Celebrating a third successive year of accolades at the Corporate Adviser Awards, Barnett Waddingham has been named 'Best Pension Adviser' for 2024.

Recognising "excellence and innovation in the delivery of workplace benefits advice, consultancy, products and services", the Corporate Adviser (CA) Awards are the leading awards for the workplace benefits community in the UK, making the accolade of being named 'Best Pension Adviser' a big honour for our Employer Consulting team.

"This is testament to the hard work the team has undertaken during the year, always striving to deliver top quality service to our clients."
Paul Leandro Partner, Barnett Waddingham

Pivotal to our success was the value of our GEM tool, part of our Clarity from BW technology suite, that brings clarity to the complexity of Defined Contribution (DC) pensions, empowering trustees and employers to make insightful decisions. Over the last twelve months, we've made further improvements to GEM, including providing an 'average member' profile, aiding clients in understanding and facilitating targeted campaigns. In one case, GEM helped to improve outcomes for over 60% of scheme members, via increased member contributions.

The award was also in recognition of our work supporting independent schools with addressing the cost increases to the Teachers’ Pension Scheme (TPS). We have advised over 70 schools, including some of the largest and most well-known schools in England and Scotland, leveraging our deep understanding of TPS and the education sector to help schools navigate challenges and seize opportunities to make informed decisions for themselves and their staff.

Employer Consulting Partner Paul Leandro said: "We are delighted with this win. It’s testament to the hard work the team has undertaken during the year, always striving to deliver top quality service to our clients. When it comes to DC consultancy, there’s nothing we can’t do."

This is the second time in two years we have been given the honour of 'Best Pension Adviser', having previously won the award in 2022, before picking up the 'Best Sustainable Benefits Adviser' in 2023.
