One of the PIMFA priorities is to develop initiatives to develop a diverse and inclusive industry. There are pockets of D&I good practice that remain hidden or unrecognised. Organisations both large and small will have examples where they are trying to change their organisation or the industry, whether that is in schools’ initiatives, or recruitment pipeline for example.
There is also exceptional, diverse talent that are coming up through the ranks in our industry that is also changing their organisations for the better, providing support to diverse communities and clients, or developing and leading innovation.
We have launched the PIMFA D&I Awards to showcase this diverse talent and good practice from firms.
The PIMFA D&I Awards 2021 is an opportunity for your firm and colleagues to be recognised for the wonderful work being carried out. Entering the PIMFA D&I Awards is free and open to all firms and stakeholders in the wealth management, investment services and financial advice sector.
May 20 – Entries Open
August 31 – Entries Close

The PIMFA D&I Awards 2021 will be our first hybrid event on October 20th – due to safety reasons, the face-to-face event is open by invitation only. However, we would love to welcome everyone else to attend the live virtual stream on October 20th – this is free to attend and you will be able to cheer on the finalists from home. Bookings for the virtual ceremony will open on Tuesday September 7.
