Commenting on the awards, Zoe Stabler, Senior Investment Writer at finder.com 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!

The shortlist of finalists in each category was selected by Finder’s subject area specialists, who identified the providers they felt were displaying key innovations in their field.
This shortlist was then passed to an expert judging panel, who decided the winning and highly commended companies by assessing the finalists across three different criteria: uniqueness of innovation, impact in the market and value to customers.
