SME News is thrilled to announce that the UK Finance Awards are returning once again in 2023! We have now hosted this popular programme for five consecutive years, and we are excited to reward the current key players across this ever-changing industry through the 2023 edition!
The UK is recognised as a global financial centre, with an enduring influence that has extended over centuries. Over the years, the UK has successfully adapted to the latest challenges and opportunities that have arisen across the international Finance landscape, maintaining its position as a market leader through technological advancements, regulatory reform, and institutional development. As the Finance industry is one of constant change, it is imperative that companies strike a balance between preserving established financial systems and promoting market competitiveness through innovation. This will then ensure that the Finance sector remains stable, while also experiencing economic growth.
While the UK’s departure from the European Union caused concern for the future of the Finance market, multiple measures implemented across the country have enabled this industry to continue to thrive even under tighter restrictions and external pressures. The establishment of new trade agreements, as well as investment in technologies such as AI, Blockchain, and Digital Banking are just some of the actions that have led to positive outcomes for the Finance sector. Even with the current cost-of-living crisis and spike in interest rates, UK Finance companies and institutions remain robust, demonstrating impressive resilience despite challenging circumstances.
Here at SME News, we strive to recognise the firms and individuals whose work ethic and inventive approach have driven industry transformation. The UK Finance sector employs over two million people and encompasses a wide range of market segments including Banking, Insurance, Asset Management, and related professional services. We are looking forward to illustrating this diversity within the UK Finance Awards 2023, by presenting a variety of award categories that cover these important fields. During our comprehensive research and selection stage, we will also pay particular attention to the global trends shaping the current financial climate. Whether this is the rise of Neobanks and non-bank finance, expanding applications of Cryptocurrency, or the projected boom in peer-to-peer lending, SME News has the experience and expertise to adequately reflect these factors in our winner’s selection.
Every recipient in the UK Finance Awards 2023 will be provided with the tools required to promote their success to the fullest. We offer both free-of-charge and commercial advertising options, so there truly is something for every budget and coverage level!
