The winners of the 2016 Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts Awards were announced last night at a glittering ceremony held at the Lancaster London Hotel, amid much expectation and excitement.
Over 400 professionals from leading financial institutions and industry bodies gathered at the event, hosted by Claudia Winkleman, to hear who would be taking home one (or several) of our prestigious awards.
A total of 42 awards were presented to deserving winners during the night, recognising those companies and individuals who have consistently delivered premium products, service and innovation in the last 12 months. The results drew on both the analytical expertise of the ILP Moneyfacts research team and the opinions of the magazine's advisory readership, with feedback invited throughout the decision-making process.
This gives a true measure of industry-wide excellence and allows the winners to display their trophies with pride, highlighting those who truly excel in their field. Prudential stole the show, winning three awards (Best Online Service, Best Investment Bond Provider and Best Investment Service) as well as coming commended in three categories and highly commended in another. Canada Life also went home with three wins and several commendations, while Aviva, LV=, Legal & General and Royal London cleaned up with two apiece.
Richard Eagling, editor of Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts, said: "In what has proved to be another challenging year for the financial services industry, it is important to recognise those companies that have consistently stood out by providing the best products and service. The winners at this year's Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts Awards can rightfully be proud of their achievements and have set the benchmark for the rest of the industry to follow."
Below is a full list of the winners in each category – if you're looking for pensions advice, investment guidance or the products to suit, they could be worth making a beeline for. All that's left to say is congratulations to everyone who made the cut, and we'll see you next year!
