Schroders UK Platform Awards

Gala Dinner - 24 September 2019

Twelve years of platform awards

The Schroders UK Platform Awards dinner will be held on 24 September at the London Hilton on Park Lane. This will be the 13th running of the event and will, we promise, be lucky for some as we celebrate the very best in platforms and technology in retail investment and financial planning. The wonderful Kate Silverton will once again host the dinner for the 10th year running. To celebrate this, the 2019 charity will be chosen by Kate, so watch this space.

Platforms are fundamentally expensive bits of technology and technology is ever changing. Platforms are becoming modular; users are demanding more integration; disruptors are looking to change the way we do things.

The awards recognise this change, so therein 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 full results of 2018 are here

If you want to make sure you are there in 2019, put September 24 in your diary!
