The World Finance Awards were created in 2007 to identify industry leaders, individuals, teams and organisations that represent the benchmark of achievement and best practice in the financial and business world. Votes are invited from users of the World Finance website - as well as being requested via email blast from its database of over 40,000 industry decision-makers. Voters must consider criteria such as innovation, originality and quality of product, as well as proof of market development and excellence in client representation.
The winners were chosen by the World Finance awards panel, headed up by editor Alexander Redcliffe, who used a wide range of criteria, and the critical eye of a collective 186 years of financial journalism to inform its decision
World Finance is a leading financial magazine, produced every two months by World News Media from its Headquarters in London.
