DC Program Wins Eddy Award
April 23, 2008
In another step toward our goal of becoming the most admired investment firm in the world, AllianceBernstein has won the prestigious Eddy Award from Pensions & Investments magazine, one of the most respected industry publications covering the institutional investments business. The Eddy Award was created, according to the magazine, “to identify and reward the best practices in providing investment education to defined contribution plan participants.” The greatest thing about this particular award is that AllianceBernstein won in the category of “Initial Education” for the work we did for our own employees in our 401(k) defined contribution plan campaign last year. The award citation mentions that “judges found the materials the easiest to read of any.” We are particularly pleased that the award comes in a business that is of strategic importance to us in the years ahead. We are sure that the world-class effort expended on our own employees will be a decided plus in helping our clients and prospects find investment excellence in their own defined contribution plans. Congratulations to everyone in the Retail Defined Contribution team and the Visual Communications team who worked on this project.
