The importance of innovation in financial services today, and its vital role of engaging and empowering customers, has led to our new awards program – recognising innovation in financial services that delivers tangible benefits to both consumer and provider.
These awards focus on the overall impact that innovation has had on the sector and/or consumer, and whether the innovation achieved or exceeded its objectives and goals.
Entries cover two types of innovation – Momentum (taking an existing product or service and improving it) or Disruption (a step change or brand-new product or service). Your entry can be a combination of both, as often happens in practice.
For these awards, we split the entries by the area of innovation rather than market sector:
There are additional awards for business-to-business and international entries.

Members of The Financial Services Forum will also be able to nominate and vote for their Inspirational Innovator of the Year.
