Some thought we were taking a gamble, scheduling the Schroders UK Platform Awards 2021 as a live event in September. Well, Boris assured us we would be OK and, for once, he lived up to his word. Not only that, the turnout was close to the record at 535 platform people celebrating success and achievement in design and use of technology. The evening was amazing. It was just wonderful to see so many people enjoying themselves doing the things they love, meting and talking to friends and colleagues, drinking and eating and simply have a great time after so long in front of a screen for yet another Zoom meeting.
As for the awards, Fidelity FundsNetwork picked up the big one - Platform of the Year 2021. The other big winners were Moneyhub, who picked up the Leading Innovation in workplace solutions and the Leading digital platform awards; abrdn led the field for the Leading platform for model portfolio services and shared the Best Platform Provider with AUM >£40n with Transact and new guys in town, seccl, won Best Use of technology award with partners, P1 Technology and also the Leading innovation award.
Congratulations to all the winners. There’s no chance to relax, though. Time to plan for next year’s awards to be held at:
