The winners of the 2014 Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts Awards were announced last night during a glittering ceremony held at the Lancaster London Hotel.
Over 400 industry professionals from leading financial institutions gathered at the event, hosted by comedian and impressionist Jon Culshaw, where a total of 39 awards were presented to deserving winners.
The awards recognise those companies which have consistently delivered premium products, service and innovation during the last 12 months, with the results drawing on both the analytical expertise of the ILP Moneyfacts research team and the opinions of its IFA readership, giving a true measure of industry-wide excellence.
Aviva, Prudential and LV= stole the show, winning two awards each (Best Personal Pension Provider and Best Term Assurance Provider for Aviva, Best Investment Bond Provider and Best Investment Service for Prudential, while LV= won the Best Income Protection Provider and Service Beyond the Call of Duty awards) as well as coming highly commended and commended in several other categories. However, lesser-known names also made their presence felt in the ceremony, highlighting the evolution of the pensions landscape.
"Given the challenging economic and regulatory climate that prevails, access to expert financial advice, underpinned by outstanding products and service from providers, has never been more important," said Richard Eagling, editor of Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts.
"From the evidence of this year's ILP Moneyfacts Awards, it is encouraging to see that there are plenty of companies that are flourishing in the post RDR-landscape having grasped the importance of offering truly client-centric service and propositions."
Below is the full list of this year's winners. Congratulations to everyone who made the cut, and good luck for 2015!
