Money Marketing has been named financial B2B title of the year at the Headlinemoney awards 2016, with the editorial team scooping a further three individual journalist awards.
The judges were unanimous in voting Money Marketing as the winner, saying “the title is the complete package”.
One of the judges commented: “[MM] has got its mojo back; a great mix of news and features for professionals working in the financial advice sphere.”
Money Marketing was also awarded highly commended in the B2B website of the year category.
Head of news Sam Brodbeck took the title for financial B2B journalist of the year, for breaking the story about the creation of the secondary annuity market, as well as securing the first in-depth interview with pensions minister Ros Altmann.
The award for B2B investment journalist of the year went to MM head of investment news and Fund Strategy editor Laura Suter. The judges commended Laura for her analysis of the impact of Mifid II on trail commission, and her exclusive on Daniel Godfrey’s shock departure from the Investment Association.
Corporate Adviser editor John Greenwood was named B2B pensions journalist of the year for his insight on the full significance of the proposed move to the pension Isa model. A challenging comment piece that was critical of Ros Altmann, eventually resulting in an apology from the pensions minister, also won praise from the judges.
Sam Brodbeck was also awarded highly commended in this category.
The awards were held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London and were hosted by BBC Radio 4 presenter and comedian Miles Jupp.
Last night’s award wins follow Money Marketing’s success at the Santander Media Awards in November, where the publication won four awards, including financial trade title of the year and trade website of the year.
