AltFi Awards 2021: The Shortlist revealed!
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:
Christian Faes (co-founder and executive chair of LendInvest)
Janine Hirt (CEO of Innovate Finance)
Romi Savova (Founder and CEO of Pensionbee)
Chris Addelsbach (Managing Partner of Outrun Ventures)
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.
