As a tax-efficient way to save for retirement, pensions offer a route to long term financial security. To highlight the importance of retirement planning in the UK, this year's Retirement Planner Awards will celebrate how providers and intermediaries are rising to the challenge of pension provision, particularly in light of the 2015 pension freedoms and the increasing number of pension scams.

Those providers and intermediaries who are at the forefront of dynamic and fresh ways to offer retirement planning and pensions advice services should now consider entering this year's awards as a way to highlight work undertaken.

Focal points of this year's awards include Best Young Retirement Planner of the Year in recognition of initiatives by advisory firms to encourage younger advisers to focus on retirement advice, as well as a brand new category - the award for Inspirational Action Against Pension Scams, in light of pension scams becoming a bigger problem year on year, with an increasing number of consumers losing their retirement savings as scammer's methods become more sophisticated.

We have also continued to expand our adviser-focused awards this year to include examples of best practice in estate planning and the growing equity release market. Please see criteria for full entry requirements.

Who should enter?
The Retirement Planner Awards are aimed at pension providers and intermediaries in the pension product and retirement planning sector. Both independent and restricted advice firms and individuals that meet the criteria are eligible to enter in all categories
