Congratulations to the finalists

The UK is home to many of the world’s premier financial services centres and a burgeoning financial technology market. These awards were developed to celebrate this incredible community, and the achievements and successes of the jurisdiction’s best and brightest.


We had a fantastic response and hundreds of entries for our independent judging panel to review. The debates were fierce and the results close, but these entries shone through and we’re pleased to be able to recognise them as 2021 finalists!


The categories are arranged in the order they will be announced during the ceremony. Click on each tab to reveal the finalists and on the logos to find out more about them.
