On 22 September 2020, the great and the good of the platform world will once again gather for the Schroders UK Platform Awards at the London Hilton in Park Lane to celebrate excellence and achievement in investment platforms and technology.
Now in their 14th year, the awards - which are run in association with Professional Adviser and will again be hosted by former journalist Kate Silverton for the 11th time - are open to advisers, platforms and providers of platform technology and planning tools.
Clive Waller, organiser of the awards, said: "For the past few years, the industry has been experiencing the challenges of systems upgrades, or re-platforming, as the exercise is more commonly described. Hopefully, we can now put that behind us and move forward and deliver more efficiency, accuracy and speed to our clients and their advisers.
"The awards recognise change in markets and technology, so in addition to recognising the best intermediary platforms, we also recognise new technology, new innovations and new ways of connecting with the investor, whether via advisers, direct or a combination of both."#
The are also awards for leading adviser businesses (over 10 advisers) and the leading adviser practice (up to 10 advisers) that recognise firms that use technology to improve their client proposition.
The awards also support charities on the night and the 535 attendees last year helped raise £24,400 for Anna Freud National Centre for Children & Families. This year the event will raising money for Parkinson's UK.
