M&G is celebrating after being named fund manager of the year for the second consecutive year at the third SimplyBiz awards this month.
Legal & General won protection company of the year, while Standard Life was named the best pension company over the last 12 months.
In addition, Zurich and Metlife scooped awards, as did Skandia, which was named provider of the year ahead of Standard Life and Norwich Union.
The awards were hosted by the adviser compliance support firm SimplyBiz at the University of Huddersfield.
Graeme Abell, M&G director of nationals and networks, says: “M&G’s fund management excellence is complemented by the relationships we have developed with the IFA community, a winning combination in this award from SimplyBiz.
“In winning this prestigious award it is recognition by the IFA community of our consistent long term performance across the key asset classes of equities, fixed income and property.”
Ian Thorneycroft, managing director of SimplyBiz, says: “Partners of the SimplyBiz community offer us and our member firms a lot of support and we see this annual event as a worthwhile way of recognising exceptional service – whether that is consistent or improved.
“The results of the ceremony are voted for by our membership and therefore we are sure these awards mean a great deal to those who receive them.”
