    Commenting on the awards, Zoe Stabler, Senior Investment Writer at said:

    This year we’ve seen an extraordinary amount of innovation in the saving and investing sectors, with a significant amount of crossover between them — more so than any other year. For our innovation awards, competition was tough — some companies were nominated for two or three categories, highlighting the impressive work they’ve put into improving their offering and making the job of choosing the winning and highly commended companies quite a challenge for the judges.

    I’m particularly impressed with how investment apps are adapting their services to help investors make more informed decisions on their investments — we’ve got better learning tools, demo accounts, coaching and research tools. A huge congratulations to all of the winning and highly commended companies!
