With the end of the year in sight, it’s that time of year again where we build up to the annual AltFi Awards. The big night is 25 November where we’ll gather in London to fully reveal the winners but for now, here is a list of all those in the running.

We are exactly three weeks away from The AltFi Awards 2021 party where we will be honouring the top innovators in financial services and banking...and we couldn’t be more excited.

Our expert judges have met up, cast votes and crunched the numbers. The hundreds of nominations have been rigorously assessed (while taking into account any biases, where possible) and now we have a full list of those firms shortlisted for one of our awards. 

A special thank you to our guest judges:

The full winners will be announced on 26 November following a glitzy ceremony in the heart of the City of London.

You can find out more about how to attend here.
