Buck named Governance Adviser of the Year in 2020 Pension and Investment Provider Awards

Buck recognised for its market-leading governance approach helping clients deliver improved member outcomes

LONDON, August 13, 2020 – Buck, an integrated HR and benefits consulting, technology, and administration services firm, today announced that the company has been recognised as Governance Adviser of the Year in Pensions Expert’s 2020 Pension and Investment Provider Awards (PIPAs).

The awards seek to acknowledge businesses who have achieved outstanding performance and upheld the highest standards of service to their clients, whilst also contributing to a more secure retirement for today’s occupational pension savers.

Buck was awarded the accolade of Governance Adviser of the Year for its innovations in helping pension schemes meet governance standards, including the development of its unique governance toolbox, which assesses the governance needs of trustee boards with a simple four-step process. The toolbox provides a comprehensive review of all aspects of a scheme’s governance structure and addresses the key challenges faced by trustees to allow them to deal effectively with increasing regulations and deliver better results for members.

The PIPAs are among the most prestigious awards programmes within their field, and all entries are evaluated by an expert panel of judges. The award reflects Buck’s unique commitment to governance and deep understanding of the regulatory environment in which its clients operate.

Vishal Makkar, Head of Retirement Consulting in the U.K. at Buck, comments:
“When trustees are fully engaged with the principles and benefits of good governance, both the pension scheme and its members benefit. Our governance toolbox, in particular, has played a key role in making this happen. There’s a clear link between strong scheme governance and improved outcomes for members, so we’re delighted to be recognised for our work in this area and will continue to refine our approach to best support our clients and their scheme members well into the future.”
