ATP (Denmark) was named European Pension Fund of the Year at last night’s IPE Awards dinner in Copenhagen.

The top prize was one of six awards scooped by Denmark’s biggest pension fund, including for Long-Term Investment Strategy, another gold award category.

The DKK 934bn (€105bn) investor was also recognised for its work in emerging markets and innovation.

Accepting the main award, Bo Foged (pictured far right above) said, “I didn’t expect to receive this prize, but thank you to the jury and the audience and also the team at ATP who worked really hard this year.”
