On a successful night at the UK Pensions Awards 2023, we were honoured to receive the award for DB Investment Innovation of the Year.

Hosted by Professional Pensions, the UK Pensions Awards shines a light on excellence and recognises the advisers that offer the highest level of innovation, performance and service to UK pension schemes and their members.

Our win in the DB Investment Innovation of the Year category focussed on our tailored Capital Backed Journey Plan (CBJP) solution, which provides a familiar structure to UK DB scheme trustees. In a complex market, the judges commended our ability to offer this fresh approach to clients to keep them focussed on their DB endgame planning goals. In addition, our entry also highlighted innovation in the areas of sustainable investment, LDI and governance.

Speaking on the success, our Head of Investment Consulting Rod Goodyer said, "Winning the DB Investment Innovation of the Year award demonstrates our innovative approach to providing our clients with bespoke, independent advice."

"Our work at the forefront of developing CBJP solutions will help trustees confidently move towards their DB end game goals and ultimately deliver better member outcomes."
