Pensions Journalist of the Year (B2B)

Pensions Age's Laura Blows collects her trophy from Pete Glancy, Head of Pensions Policy at Scottish Widows and awards host Ayesha Hazarika MBE


Laura Blows, Pensions Age

As usual there was a strong shortlist in the pensions B2B category. During the panel’s deliberations, two entries stood out and it took some time to agree the winner. Congratulations to Laura Blows of Pensions Age.

Laura’s entry showed “an engaging, accessible writing style”. “These pieces offer fresh takes on important subjects,” said one judge. “I was particularly impressed with the article about menopause, stuffed with research and fascinating to read,” said another.

Highly Commended:

Amy Austin, FTAdviser

Congratulations also go to Amy Austin of FTAdviser, whose entry was praised by judges for including “wonderfully written, engaging pieces, full of context and getting to the heart of the issues”.
