Shortlists announced for IC/FT awards

Who's been making a positive contribution to society and helping investors achieve their goals?
Shortlists announced for IC/FT awards

The shortlists in all 13 categories for the 2021 IC/FT Celebration of Investment awards have now been announced. The winners in each category will be revealed on 25 November 2021 at a special event at Bracken House, London.

Five of the Celebration of Investment awards relate to ESG, and are designed to recognise financial services providers who are making a positive contribution to society in a variety of ways. Seven award categories focus on the quality of support given to private investors. The final category is the Readers’ Choice.

The judging panel, made up of editorial staff from the Financial Times and Investors’ Chronicle, was looking for evidence of initiatives or practices that could lead to better governance, helped the local community or protected the planet, or that offered exceptional support to private investors.  The judges were impressed by the high standard of the entries, which came in the form of submissions from companies and nominations from readers.
