We are delighted to announce that following the Government’s ‘out of lockdown’ announcement, the Schroders UK Platform Awards will be held once again at the London Hilton on Park Lane on 21 September.
This will be the 15th running of the awards dinner making it not only the biggest and most significant event in the platform calendar, but by far the oldest. The wonderful Kate Silverton will once again host the event for the 12th year.
As ever, we shall be supporting a highly deserving charity, Parkinson’s UK.
This has been a very different period to any in the history of the awards. Lockdown, and the resulting inability of people to leave home, has required platforms, technology providers and advisers to step up to the plate with new practices and processes to ensure business could continue, indeed, to thrive, on a remote basis. They succeeded, and demonstrated that they can not only change when required, but they can deliver such change far faster than anyone believed.
As such, our judges will be keen to examine not only how platforms have changed to facilitate remote business, but also how they have learned to change more quickly to enable faster delivery of new functionality in the future.
Once again, we recognise the increasing significance of ESG and sustainability issues in both investment and in corporate behaviours and are incorporating a question in all platform and adviser submissions to reflect this.
We look forward to celebrating this success in the traditional, person-to-person, way in September – all being well!
Do join us on 21 September. It really will be great fun!
