1 hell of an entertaining evening.

Here are the winners of our 2019 awards.

Well that was fun! Last night saw the 2019 edition of our customer-voted awards ceremony, hosted in partnership with The Times and The Sunday Times.

Outstanding investment providers were crowned, Gatsby-themed entertainers pranced, and the people behind the scenes at your favourite companies proved their worth on the dancefloor.

You voted. Who won?

First of all, a great big thank you to the 4,000 members of the public who cast over 15,000 votes in April and May. In the words of Holly Mackay, CEO of Boring Money:

“It’s really important to have investment awards which showcase the collective experience of thousands of investors, rather than a small panel of judges with limited practical experience of the services being judged.

“Research tells us that an increasing number of people turn to their friends or media outlets for advice about finance and investments. We are more likely to trust each other than big institutions.”

A great year for socially responsible investing

Socially responsible or impact investing ( was recognised in two awards, with L&G Investment Management winning the Best Marketing Campaign Award for their Own Your World campaign, and Nutmeg securing runner-up in the Innovation Award for its socially responsible portfolios.

“We know that people care about this subject and this is now a mainstream story. 62% of women investors and 45% of male investors are interested and want to learn more. We need better storytelling and clarity, and both L&G and Nutmeg have led the field with their work this year,” says Holly Mackay.
