2016 LAPF Investments Awards

Event Date: September 1, 2016

Venue: Savoy Hotel, London

Host: Mark Durden-Smith


Following the outstanding success of the launch in 2015 of the LAPF Investments Awards for local authority pension funds and their advisers, the 2016 LAPF Investments Awards, were held at The Savoy Hotel in London on the 1st September.

Host for the evening, Mark Durden-Smith, was hugely entertaining and it’s fair to say that his slightly irreverent approach really helped make the evening special.
