The Money Management Institute announced that its 2005 Pioneer Award recipients are Charles Widger of Brinker Capital, Lawrence Sinsimer of Eaton Vance and James Seuffert of Bank of New York. The awards will be handed out at the Institute's annual convention Wednesday in Philadelphia.

The MMI gives out the awards "to members who have made significant contributions to the SMA and wealth management industries, as well as demonstrated a commitment to upholding a highly ethical work environment," said the trade association of the separately managed account industry, which has ballooned to $576 billion in assets as of the end of 2004.
