Popular pensions expert Mike Morrison has been given the lifetime achievement award at the annual Personal Finance Society awards, which took place last night (Wednesday 22 November) at the Roundhouse in Camden, London.
Morrison, who, as reported, tragically passed away earlier this month, was a popular and influential figure during his three decades in the financial services industry.
He had dedicated much of his career to educating advisers and journalists on the ever changing pensions landscape, starting at Provident Life (later Winterthur and then Axa Wealth) in 1990 before leaving for AJ Bell in 2012.
PFS chief executive Keith Richards said: “Everyone at the Personal Finance Society was shocked and saddened to hear the news about one of the profession’s best known and most respected experts on anything and everything ‘pension technical’.
“Mike was a most welcome and highly regarded speaker at our events across the country, and could always be relied upon to deliver business-relevant CPD in his uniquely impactful and humorous style.
“I am honoured to have known and worked with him and we are proud to bestow this lifetime achievement award for his contribution to the personal finance profession and the public we serve. A gentleman and professional who will be dearly missed.”
A memorial fund has been set up in Mike’s memory to raise money for Daisy’s Dream – a local charity that supports bereaved children – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/rita-morrison
