Dalriada Trustees Limited, is celebrating after being recognised for the high standard of its work at a UK pensions industry awards ceremony.
Dalriada was highly commended at the Pensions Age Awards, staged in London on 27 February 2014, in the Independent Trustee Firm of the Year category. The judges especially praised the firm, calling it a ‘trail blazer’ for its work in addressing the issue of pension liberation.
In the last year, Dalriada has been appointed by the Pensions Regulator to 29 schemes which the Regulator believes may have been used to facilitate pension liberation. It now acts as trustee to a total of 44 schemes where liberation is suspected, seeking to protect member funds of more than £96 million.
Dalriada’s CEO Brian Spence said: “We are delighted with this commendation and the recognition we’ve received from across the UK pensions industry. Our work in tackling pension liberation has been ground-breaking and has helped enhance our reputation as a forward-thinking innovative Trustee.”
