Once again, the great and the good of platform world will gather at the London Hilton in Park Lane to acclaim excellence and achievement in platform technology.
This year’s years dinner will be the tenth, a very special occasion that we will be celebrating in style. Once again, the fabulous Kate Silverton will be our host.
Our awards are open to platforms, advisers and providers of platform technology and toolsets. We even have an award for the top platform journalist of the year.
This year, we will add a special award, the Platform of the Decade, to reward the platform that has demonstrated superior and consistent quality and service to clients and their advisers over the last ten years - remembering that platforms are for the long run.
With our sponsors, Schroders and our media partner, Professional Adviser, we have set ourselves the target of ensuring that our judging process is of such a standard, that advisers will regard winners as automatic candidates for their selection shortlists.
To assist in this process, the judging and voting is outsourced to the Personal Finance Society to ensure total independence. We are delighted that Keith Richards, CEO, has agreed to be the chair of judging.
