What our previous winners say

CERN Pension Fund in Switzerland

"The news that the panel of judges honoured the CERN Pension Fund for its risk management is a tremendous encouragement for the CERN Pension Fund team to continue to reach for best practice. Receiving the award was an honour. But most importantly, being recognized by a prestigious publication and a distinguished jury provides comfort to our members and beneficiaries. Altogether, we are very grateful to Investments & Pensions Europe for its leadership in the pensions industry, and for pushing us to be the best at what we do!"
Theodore Economou, Chief Executive Officer

BPI Gestão de Activos in Portugal

"It is very important for the investment management industry to keep fighting for the trust of their clients in these difficult times. External and independent appraisals do make the difference and the IPE Awards are the gold standard in the pension fund industry. Winning the IPE Award for Portugal is an important recognition in our market and a motivation to try to maintain excellence. Looking back to all eight times we have taken part, we realise that this has pushed us further to achieving greater innovation and continuously improving our investment and decision making processes."
