Money Marketing won a total of four accolades at this year’s Santander Media Awards, including financial trade title of the year and trade website of the year.
Money Marketing regulation reporter Tessa Norman was named as the winner of the judge’s award for trade article of the year, for revealing that the FCA had overcharged advisers £118m over five years.
Paul Thomas, editor of Mortgage Strategy and who works across Money Marketing, took the award for trade journalist of the year. Tessa Norman was also the runner up in this category.
The awards were held at the Millbank Tower in London and hosted by Sky News presenter Ian King, who presented Money Marketing editor Natalie Holt with the team awards (pictured with Santander mortgage division managing director Miguel Sard).
The independent 25-strong judging panel, including advisers, regulators, consumer groups and national newspaper journalists, sifted through hundreds of entries.
Judges described Money Marketing as “packed from cover to cover with top quality content” and a publication that “clearly gets what its audience wants and leads the way with comprehensive and engaging coverage of the issues that matter”.
The judges said the website also “delivers breaking news, analysis and opinion to its professional adviser audience on the issues that really matter”.
It marks the third year in a row that Money Marketing has collected the award for best trade website.
Earlier this year Money Marketing won four Headlinemoney awards, including financial B2B title of the year for the sixth time in a row. It was also crowned trade publication of the year at the Association of British Insurers’ Financial Media Awards.
