Welcome to the Finder Investing & Saving Innovation Awards 2023

Finder’s series of Innovation Awards recognise financial providers that are innovating in their chosen field, by bringing new and impactful features to the market and delivering beneficial services to their customers.

Now in their fourth year, this round of Innovation Awards focuses on the investing and saving space. A shortlist of providers was drawn together by Finder’s subject area specialists and the finalists were then assessed by an expert panel of judges.

We are delighted to announce the winning and highly commended companies in the following categories:

  • Saving Innovation

  • Pensions Innovation
  • Share Dealing Innovation
  • ESG Investing Innovation
  • Investing Innovation Newcomer Award
Meanwhile, this year for the first time, we asked you which brands made it easy for you to invest or save in our People’s Choice Awards. We received thousands of votes across these 2 categories:
  • People’s Choice: Investing Provider

We show offers we can track - that's not every product on the market...yet. Unless we've said otherwise, products are in no particular order. The terms "best", "top", "cheap" (and variations of these) aren't ratings, though we always explain what's great about a product when we highlight it. This is subject to our terms of use. When you make major financial decisions, consider getting independent financial advice. Always consider your own circumstances when you compare products so you get what's right for you. Most of the data in Finder's comparison tables has the source: Moneyfacts Group PLC. In other cases, Finder has sourced data directly from providers.
