Finura Partners achieves double nomination at this year’s Financial Innovation Awards


We are delighted to announce that Finura Partners has been shortlisted in two categories at this year’s Financial Innovation Awards.

Finura is one of three finalists in the Best Financial Start-up category and one of five companies shortlisted in the Excellence in Customer Experience – planning and advice sub category.

The Awards are hosted each year by financial education provider, ifs University College and leading trade association, the British Bankers Association (BBA) and recognise innovation in the world of banking and finance. They celebrate innovative projects that have launched over the past year and offer insight into new products, projects and propositions that are shaping the sector.

Chris Ray, Director of Marketing, Communications & Professional Services at ifs University College, said:

“We are seeing evolution in almost every aspect of the banking and finance industries, driven by technology, or the need to serve new customer groups and meet their requirements. The sheer volume of entries we received 2016 Awards has already made the judges’ roles very difficult, even at the shortlisting stage. This year, we have seen the entry of a number of new and exciting ventures which are challenging the established order and industry-leading developments from major global organisations, proving once again that innovation is vibrant across the industry. We wish all of our finalists good luck!”

The winners will be announced at the Grand Connaught Rooms on 8th December 2016.

This latest success is the fifth shortlisting for Finura Partners in the past 12 months alone.
