RSM named Pensions Accountancy Firm of the Year

Audit, tax and consulting firm RSM has been named Pensions Accountancy Firm of the Year at the annual Pensions Age awards.

The award was presented to RSM’s head of pensions Ian Bell at a ceremony held at the London Marriott in Grosvenor Square.

The firm was nominated for the award for its development of an innovative benchmarking tool which helps trustees to compare the management of their schemes versus their peers. The tool has enabled RSM’s clients to improve their strategic decision making and helped trustees to better manage risks and ensure effective trusteeship and governance.

RSM’s head of pensions Ian Bell said:

‘It is very gratifying to receive this award from Pensions Age which recognises the hard work of our pensions team right across the country. It also reflects the efforts that we have made as a firm to constantly innovate in order to provide the best service to our pension scheme clients.’

RSM’s pensions team comprises 12 partners and 150 staff working across seven UK offices in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds, Gatwick, Tunbridge Wells and Glasgow. The team works with over 500 pension schemes, 18 of which hold assets of more than £1bn.
