Fund Strategy partners with Growth Investor Awards

Fund Strategy and sister publication Money Marketing have been announced as the official media partner for this year’s Growth Investor Awards.

The awards, run by Intelligent Partnership, celebrate the role of the UK small and medium-enterprise fund management community in job and wealth creation.

The Growth Investor Awards recognise those enabling start up and ‘scale up’ businesses to realise their full potential and drive Britain’s economic recovery. The awards include Financial Adviser of the Year, Wealth Manager of the Year, Growth Champion of the Year and the Industry Champion Award. The deadline for submissions is 24th June.

After going through a two-stage judging process, finalists will be announced in July with winners revealed in a ceremony on November 3rd.

Daniel Kiernan, research director of Intelligent Partnership and chair of the judges, says: Talent and technology were identified as two key enablers of growth last year, with providers supporting their investee companies with guidance and networks alongside investment.”

Sherry Coutu, founding member of the Growth Investor Awards’ advisory board, and co-founder of the Scale Up Institute, says: Competitive advantage doesn’t go to the nations that focus on creating companies; it goes to the nations that focus on scaling them.

“The Growth Investor Awards recognise the broader contribution of the SME fund management community to scale up growth and those best optimising investment and support.”
