Danish pension provider wins major industry award

PensionDanmark crowned best in Europe

Yesterday evening at the European pension industry’s IPE Conference and Awards 2014, which took place in Vienna, PensionDanmark was named Europe’s best pension fund. The company won the same award in 2012.

“We are of course incredibly proud to have received the prize as Europe’s best pension company for the second time in three years. It’s an acknowledgement that our investment strategy has secured our members good and stable returns over many years,” Torben Möger Pedersen, the company’s CEO, said in a press release.

Customers first
Pedersen however emphasised that the company is more focused on customers’ feedback. “The prize is only worth something if the members are also satisfied. PensionDanmark was recently judged in a survey to have the most satisfied in Denmark and that really made’s the evening’s prize meaningful.”

The IPE event is the biggest of its kind in Europe. Some 650 delegates attended this year.
