This page is devoted to a fair and clean campaign; the Pension Personality award should be taken seriously (Anne-Marie and Mike got very cross a couple of years ago).
So please report any more defamatory material to this page. I am determined to give it no time at all.
Here it is… The shortlist for this year’s Pensions Personality of the Year…
The names of the seven finalists – which were chosen by you, our readers, in an industry-wide vote – will now be put to the UK Pensions Awards judges, who will select the overall winner.
The winner will be announced at the UK Pensions Awards gala dinner on Thursday 1 May.
The shortlisted candidates are as follows:
Steve is head of benefits strategy at Jelf Employee Benefits and is also a member of the department for work and pensions’ auto-enrolment intermediaries forum. In addition to this, he is a regular commentator on UK employee benefits.
Steve is passionate about improving the communication about the value and usage of employee benefits to employers – and has spoken and blogged regularly on the subject.
Bobby is head of investment consulting at Capita Employee Benefits. He has over 20 years investment experience and over 15 years of providing investment advice to the employers and trustees of defined benefit and defined contribution pension schemes.
In his spare time, he is a bass guitarist – forming a band called ‘Decapitator’ in 2013 and winning the industry-wide battle of the bands Pension Rocks later that year.
Bob is a partner at LCP and became the firm’s senior partner in 2011. He is a fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries; a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries of Australia; and is honorary secretary of the Association of Consulting Actuaries.
He is the appointed actuary to 10 UK pension schemes and advises a number of employers on their UK pension arrangements.
In addition to this, Bob is the author of Accounting for Pensions, which has been published annually since 1994 and which is accepted as the authoritative survey of the FTSE 100 companies’ pension disclosures.
Ruston is chairman of the National Association of Pension Funds and group pensions & insurable risk director at Tesco, responsible for the running of the group’s pension schemes, its insurance and risk financing.
Before joining Tesco Ruston was a director & company secretary at PZ Cussons. He has an MBA from Manchester and is an Associate of the Pensions Management Institute and a Fellow of the Institute of Management.
Margaret is a director at JLT Employee Benefits. In addition to this role she is the chairman of the Monitoring Board for Incentive Exercises; chairman of the Centre for Retirement Reform, which works to improve retirement outcomes for people in Britain; and is chairman of the Pensions Administration Standards Association.
In addition to this, she is governor and council member of the Pensions Policy Institute and a member of the Women’s Insurance Network.
Henry is director of First Actuarial, founding editor of Pensions PlayPen and the eponymous LinkedIn group; and a regular blogger.
He is an enthusiast for good pensions that deliver to expectations and is currently focussed on helping 1.2 million employers who aren’t interested in pensions to be interested in pensions.
Henry is not an actuary, nor very good at maths but he talks a good story and aspires to be the Martin Lewis of pensions.
Anne-Marie is a partner at Nabarro. She advises employers, group companies, trustees, in-house lawyers, local authorities, contractors and other law firms on commercial and legal pensions issues.
Her particular area of skill is leading parties through commercial pensions negotiations – relating to funding or benefit redesign, an outsourcing project or corporate restructuring, or the UK pensions aspects of an international deal.
Anne-Marie is a regular commentator in legal issues in the press and is a regular judge for industry awards.
