Investment Marketing and Innovation Awards – Finalist Details

Sturgeon Ventures LLP, the most established Regulatory Incubator, are pleased to announce being shortlisted for The Investment Marketing and Innovation Awards, under the “Open Category innovation award.”
These new awards celebrate all that is fresh, new and relevant in investments. The awards categories cover both marketing and proposition development and are designed to recognise and reward innovation within the sector.

The panel of judges, led by Lawrence Gosling Editorial Director of Investment Week and Brendan Llewellyn, has been selected to offer a balance of deep sector understanding and a wider outside perspective.
They will be looking for entrants who show:

  • The appetite to seek new solutions
  • The confidence to make them happen
  • The expertise and determination to turn new thinking into business success

The Open Category Innovation Award is open to any firm operating in retail investments and looks for the best examples of new thinking leading to relevant innovation throughout the business, such as a new approach to client service, to HR, to risk management within an organisation.
IMAIA is a new type of awards programme. Some awards recognise only creative output; others require quasi academic papers to evidence effectiveness. IMAIA charts a new middle way. It is interested in creativity but only if it shows new thinking. It is interested in results but requires only the basic details – entering for the IMAIAs is not a stamina test!
