Aviva has been voted Pensions Provider of the Year 2009/10 at the Personal Finance Awards ceremony, organised by personal finance website www.themoneypages.com.
A panel of journalists, financial advisers and customers judged providers based on proposition quality, service, brand and sustainability after 4,000 of the website’s customers voted for their preferred providers.
Paul Goodwin, head of pensions at Aviva, said: “We are delighted to have won this award, particularly because it was voted for by customers and covers all our pension propositions including individual and group. Aviva was ranked ahead of Standard life, Scottish Widows and L&G, and highlights the progress we have made in pensions, the improvements we have made to our propositions and the success of our market-leading online pensions tracker.”
