LCP won the Risk Reduction Adviser of the Year and the Educational and Thought Leadership Initiative of the Year awards at last night’s UK Pensions Awards 2021. They were also highly commended in the Diversity and Inclusion Excellent category.
LCP’s de-risking team have had a busy year, helping clients navigate the uncertainty of the market during the pandemic and helping schemes take advantage of pricing opportunities. The team led on 50% of all buy-ins over £100m during April to July 2020 when pricing was at its best. In total LCP led on a record 18 buy-ins/outs over £100m in 2020 and led on 30% of all transactions between £10m and 100m.
Commenting on the win, Charlie Finch, Partner at LCP said: “We are so pleased that our work helping clients respond to the pandemic – both the challenges and the opportunities – has been recognised by this award. From developing Covid-19 longevity scenarios to our streamlined processes and umbrella contracts which allow clients to transact quickly and cost-effectively, we seek to add value and help our clients take action in a fast-moving market so they can lock-in to opportunities when they arise.”
LCP won the Educational and Thought Leadership Initiative of the Year award for LCP’s new ‘On Point’ papers, a new series of papers spearheaded by Steve Webb. The series was developed to challenge orthodoxy in the pensions and personal finance space, getting under the skin of public policy issues that impact the industry and to help members better understand how their pensions work.
Steve Webb, Partner at LCP, said: “From creating a national campaign that has helped thousands of women recoup money they are owed from their pensions to starting policy conversations around complex issues such as the triple lock and the new funding regime, it's fair to say that our papers have made a splash with the media, our clients and across the industry. We are delighted with this win and look forward to tackling many more thorny and complex issues.”
