PQM Distinction AWARD

The Pension Quality Mark (PQM) was established to set aspirational standards for the industry and to lead the way in improving outcomes for savers.   In assessing a wide range of schemes for accreditation we have a unique insight into best practive and innovation.  In 2017 we established the PQM Distinction award to recognise schemes that are 'the best of the best' and exceed in one area of the PQM Standards. Awardees may be used as case studies for other schemes to learn and improve from. 

Schemes do not need to apply for PQM Distinction; our assessors will look for especially good practice in the course of assessing for PQM accreditation, and nominate those schemes for a shortlist.    A small panel comprised of PLSA team members and industry experts will consider the shortlisted schemes, and decide a winner.  Awards will usually be made at the PLSA conference in October.
