Irish Pensions Awards 2021

BCP is delighted to be awarded the ‘Cash-driven Investment Manager of the Year’ at the recent Irish Pensions Awards held at the Shelbourne Hotel.

Through our connections with international banks and our strict bank  on-boarding process  we have been able to offer clients secure positive yielding cash and deposit options. We do this by having a thorough understanding of each bank’s business model and how their funding requirements change. This allows us identify opportunities between a particular bank’s funding requirements and the needs of the markets.

Cash investing is about preservation of capital so although we strive to maximise cash returns we do so without compromising security. To date, we have €2.5 billion in cash deposits under management. It is worth noting that 100% of all BCP deposit products have delivered the capital guarantee amount to investors since inception over 50 years ago. 

Structured Retail Products European Awards

BCP was delighted to be announced as the winner of the Best Performance and Best distributor in Ireland at the Structured Retail Products European Awards 2020 which were held in the Hilton London Tower Hotel in London on 28th-30th January 2020.

Irish Pensions Awards 

BCP was delighted to be awarded the prestigious title of ‘Property Manager of the Year’ for the third consecutive year at the Irish Pensions Awards 2016, seeing off competition from insurance companies and other property investment managers in the market. These awards honour both large and small pension funds, as well as the investment firms, consultancies and pension providers that have set the very highest professional standards in their market. The Property Manager of the Year Award recognises the manager that has displayed unrivalled excellence and consistency in their property management over an extended period of time.

BCP was awarded this much-coveted title in recognition of our latest success with the BCP International Property Fund (IPF) which launched in 2015. The Fund is currently focused on capturing opportunities in the Irish commercial property market, but ultimately has an international property investment remit. The IPF is open to individuals, Friends First SDIO Pensions, Pensions (SSAP, ARF/AMRF, PRB), non-residents, corporates and trusts.

BCP was also shortlisted in three other categories at this year's awards: Communication Award & Alternatives Investment Manager of the Year.
