Last month, things at PensionBee HQ wound down for the festive season, and we spent some time reflecting on what a memorable year 2020 was for all of us. From administering more than a billion pounds of pension savings on your behalf and winning some of the pensions industry’s most coveted awards, to the success of our fossil fuel free campaign and the launch of online game Scam Man & Robbin’, we took some time to celebrate our achievements and our team had a well-deserved break over the holidays.
Despite the challenges we’ve all faced as a result of coronavirus, we managed to reach many significant milestones due to the hard work and dedication of our team and thanks to you, our lovely customers, who signed up in your thousands last year. We’re back to work now and looking forward to building on our successes in 2021, and helping many more savers in the UK plan for a happy retirement.
We ended 2020 on a high
Last month, PensionBee picked up its first European Pensions Award, winning in the ‘European Pensions Innovation’ category. We’re thrilled to be recognised for displaying ‘true innovation by filling a gap in the market to meet customer needs, achieving impressive results along the way’.
We were also named ‘Fintech Of The Year’ at the AltFi Awards, which recognise outstanding achievement in the Alternative Finance and Fintech industries. PensionBee was praised for ‘driving innovation, moving the industry forward, and growing significantly in the past 12 months’.
