A review of the 2021 awards

A review of the 2021 awards

The winners of the 2021 Business Moneyfacts Awards were announced on 15 April 2021 in an exciting online virtual event.

On this page you'll be able to explore the event,  viewing the winners, highly commended and commended brands for each award.

You can also click through to the special celebration brochure. This was sent out to Business Moneyfacts magazine subscribers and finalists.

Lee Tillcock, Editor of Business Moneyfacts, said:

"A year unlike any we have seen before has provided challenges to the economy and the business sector that no one had foreseen. While Brexit negotiations continued and finally completed, COVID-19 caused businesses, brokers and providers to re-evaluate the ways in which they undertook their working lives. The finalists and eventual winners at this year’s awards should be rightly proud of their achievements and have offered a range of products and services that have best supported the sector, at a time when its success and growth remains vital."
