People’s Pension Trust Ghana Limited last Friday picked up two awards at the 2nd edition of the Ghana Accountancy and Finance Awards (GAF Awards). The company won ‘Best Corporate Trustee – Informal Sector’ and ‘Best Corporate Trustee – Education and Sensitisation’, beating competition from several industry veterans.
Speaking on the awards, Chief Executive Officer of People’s Pension Trust-Samuel Waterberg said: “It is significant that we have received these two awards, as the company aims to be recognised as the organisation that successfully reduces old-age poverty by providing 500,000 Ghanaians, particularly informal sector workers, with pension cover in the next five years”.
He added that it will spur the company on to innovate and develop its processes to increase accessibility and ensure the safety and security of funds. He thanked clients for believing in themselves enough to sign onto the scheme, thus ensuring they have an enjoyable retirement.
He further urged them to be consistent in their savings, as well as be worthy ambassadors of the brand by encouraging people in their network to also get on board.
The company was also adjudged Pension Company of the Year at the Ghana Business Awards held a few weeks earlier. This therefore brings to three the total awards picked up so far by the company since its entry onto the Ghanaian pension landscape two years ago.
The company provides trustee services under both Tier-2 and 3 schemes, and is focused on offering flexible and innovative pension products for both formal and informal sector workers in the country.
