MM top for headline news

Money Marketing has won two major awa-rds at the inaugural awards by taking the trade media team of the year

and the trade media journalist of the year titles.

The awards, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, were run by

Headline, an online resource for personal finance

journalists and PRs, in partnership with Barclays.

A judging panel of 124 journalists and industry representatives

selected the winners.

MM deputy news editor Corey Boles was named trade media journalist of

the year and praised for his strong awareness of how major regulatory

issues affect the IFA community and for his grasp of political issues.

The MM editorial team was voted number one trade team for its ability

to continually break news stories, its incisive comment and analysis

and consistently backing the core IFA readership – and all with a

sense of humour.

Former MM staff journalists and current columnists, Andrew Verity of

the BBC and Richard Miles of The Times won the awards for broadcast

journalist and investment writer respectively.
