The Railways Pension Scheme wins ‘European Pension Fund of the Year’ at the 11th annual European Pensions Awards. The final shortlist comprised seven European funds and was judged by a panel of 12 senior figures from across the European financial services industry.

The ceremony, which took place on 21 June 2018 at the London Marriott Hotel, recognises the organisations that have set the standard for professional excellence in order to best meet their objectives and fiduciary duties.

Commenting on the award, John Chilman, Chairman of the Railways Pension Trustee Company, said: “We are delighted to receive this award as a recognition of our commitment to delivering continuous improvement for our 350,000 members – whether that be to our investment arrangements, scheme governance or member communications.
