Presented by The London Institute of Banking and Finance and UK Finance Celebrating 20 years of innovation
The judging panel combines extensive academic knowledge and industry expertise with many years experience in the fields of financial services, insurance and technology. Many of the judges have been involved in projects very similar to those that have been nominated for awards and have experienced the hours of hard work, and the highs and the lows that such undertakings entail. They therefore bring a wealth of relevant skills and knowledge to the judging panel.
