Investors Chronicle/Financial Times Celebration of Investment Awards

Our new awards are designed to celebrate the investment industry at its best. We want to recognise the fund managers, stockbrokers, platforms and advisers who stand out from their peers for their positive contribution to society, whether that is delivering strong performance, increasing diversity, good ethical practice, or excellent customer service.

As a retail investor, you can nominate your choice for which companies go above and beyond to provide the best service for investors here

Companies can submit entries themselves here. 

Winners will be announced on 25th November 2021.

Four of the awards focus on ESG (Governance, Community, Protecting the Planet, Innovation) and six focus on private investors (New Investor, Tax Planning, Pension Support – drawdown, Pension Support – Sipp, Shareholder Support – research and data, Shareholder Support – access to companies).

The judging panel will meet on 9 September to assess the entries and select the winners.
