- The European Pensions Awards recognise the pension providers that have set the professional standards in order to best serve European pension funds over the past year.
- EQ recognised for supporting clients, and the continuity of service through the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as innovation in digital-first technology to support scheme members.
EQ (Equiniti), a leading provider of pension administration and software services in the UK has been recognised as Pension Scheme Administrator of the Year at The European Pensions Awards.
The European Pensions Awards were launched to give recognition to and honour the investment firms, consultancies and pension providers across Europe that have set the professional standards in order to best serve European pension funds over the past year.
EQ made considerable further investment in developing its Compendia pension software and administration solution during 2020, pushing ahead despite the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. Upgrades included increased member and employer portal functionality, speedier, more accessible online calculations and transactions for members, as well as new interactive dashboards and improved MI for employers.
This development has already led to two prestigious appointments, with EQ selected by Royal Mail for their UK-first CDC scheme and the Compendia LGPS solution awarded a place on the National Local Government Pension Scheme Software Framework.
Duncan Watson, CEO at EQ Paymaster, commented: “We are honoured to have won this award and with it the continued recognition of our market leading administration technology and service. We would like to thank our clients for their fantastic ongoing support. We will continue to invest in and develop our digital-first approach to meet current and future pension scheme administration and technology needs and to maintain our position as one of the key pension providers in the UK.”
