The finalists of the 7th annual Smart Money People British Bank Awards 2021 have been announced. The awards aim to champion leaders in the financial sector by honouring both their products and innovative services.
A number of Master Investor partners have been nominated in this year’s awards so we are excited to share this year’s finalists with you. We’d like to send a special congratulations to our sponsors WiseAlpha who are finalists for the Best Investments Provider award. Following success in this category in 2018 and 2019, we hope that their unique platform offering fractional bonds to private investors will win them the award for the third time. They are also finalists in the Customer Service Champion category. If you’d like to vote to support them, please click here.
Below is a full list of the finalists. If you do spot a company that you use and appreciate, please do consider voting for them to help them win their award category. By voting you’ll also be entered into a prize draw to win £1,000! Voting is open until 19th April and winners will be announced at an awards celebration on 8th July in London. Cast your vote here.
