The winners of the 2014 UK Pensions Awards were announced last week at a drinks reception at Grosvenor House in London. The awards aim to recognise pension providers that offer the highest levels of innovation, performance and service and have done the most to improve over the last year.
First held in 1998, they have since grown to become the biggest single gathering of the corporate pensions industry. The awards now span 27 different categories, including risk reduction provider of the year, emerging markets manager of the year and investment innovation of the year.
In the socially responsible investment (SRI) and environmental, social and governance (ESG) category, Threadneedle Investments came out top. The firm has nearly £90 billion in funds under management and earlier this year launched a social bond fund that has a strong focus on social housing. It also has a dedicated entity that the company provides support for charitable activities.
Campbell Fleming, CEO of Threadneedle Investments, commented, “We are round to have won the SRI/ESG provider of the year award at this year’s UK Pensions Awards and to be recognised for the launch of the Threadneedle Social Bond Fund, the UK’s first daily liquid, mainstream investment vehicle that aims to deliver financial returns as well as positive social outcomes.
“The award also endorses the strong performance across our responsible investment strategies, continuing integration of ESG research into out mainstream investment processes and a constantly improving service to out institutional clients.”
