IPE Awards 2019: Open for entries

Related Categories

The IPE Awards are now open for entries.

Launched in 2001, the event has grown to become the premier event of its kind and largest annual gathering of pension funds in Europe, with 44 prizes up for grabs.

Commodities will make a return in 2019 to the roster to reflect the comeback of the asset class following a lull in popularity after the financial crisis a decade ago.

Last year saw PensionDanmark secure the highly prized European Pension of the Year award for the second year running and fourth time overall, while chief executive Torben Möger Pedersen took the Outstanding Industry Contribution title for his tireless commitment to the evolution of Europe’s pensions sector.

Another notable winner was Sweden’s AP4. The national buffer fund won five trophies overall – one from each level: Gold, Silver, Bronze, Country/Regional and Themed.

The IPE Awards reward excellence and innovation in Europe’s diverse pensions industry, creating a meaningful annual benchmark enabling pensions providers of all shapes and sizes to measure their investment and other areas of performance against their peers at national, regional and global levels, as well as against institutions of a similar size, remit and resource.

In 2018, we received 459 entries across 42 categories, from pension funds worth a combined €2trn. These institutions represent over 90m pension fund members in 24 different countries across Europe.

The judging roster features up to 100 industry experts and leading former pension fund executives who are selected for their expertise and knowledge in specialist areas.

Entering the IPE Awards is completely confidential and free of charge, and is based on a streamlined but sophisticated online entry system.

This year, the conference and awards dinner will take place at the Tivoli Congress Center in Copenhagen, Denmark.
