The Corporate & Financial Awards celebrate excellence in all aspects of City communication. Corporate communications has never been more important. Never before have so many groups of stakeholders had access to corporate information or the ability to influence that company’s brand.

The Corporate & Financial Awards is the only true benchmark of companies’ communication with the City and its influencers. The awards programme celebrates and showcases excellence in financial communications and provides recognition for the efforts of staff, companies, agencies and beneficiaries.

For companies trying to reach investors, analysts, consultants in the investment community, financial journalists and their peers, corporate reporting is the primary means of communications. The Corporate & Financial Awards recognises excellence in this area and in all aspects of corporate communications with these stakeholder groups.
