We’re on a roll! Following on from our success at the Investment Provider Awards earlier this year, B&CE (provider of The People’s Pension) now has two more prestigious national awards to its name. 

The People’s Pension has been named DC Master Trust of the Year at the UK Pensions Awards 2016. Additionally, B&CE was awarded DC Pensions Provider of the Year. 

The UK Pensions Awards recognises excellence in performance, innovation and service standards across the UK pensions industry.

Note to editors

B&CE is a not-for-profit organisation – we operate for the benefit of our members and their dependants. We were founded in the construction industry back in 1942. Now we offer a workplace pension, employee accident cover, employee life cover and employee healthcare.

We currently manage assets of over £2.6 billion, with more than three million members and over 18,500 corporate accounts.

For over 30 years, B&CE has provided workplace pensions to employers large and small. We’ve operated ways to automatically enrol employees into pension saving for over ten years.

In November 2011 we announced The People’s Pension, our flexible solution to help employers to comply with their automatic enrolment duties. It’s designed for people rather than profit and is suitable for any organisation in any sector. We launched a new streamlined solution for small employers in November 2015.

The People’s Pension has won us a number of awards, including the Defaqto 5 Star Rating for auto-enrolment in 2015 and DC Provider of the Year at the UK Pensions Awards in 2014.
