2021/22 Personal Finance Awards – Announcing the winners – The Money Pages

Voted for by you, the consumer, the Personal Finance Awards are run by The Money Pages which is the sister brand of What Mortgage.

Visitors to the website started by nominating a business with which they, a friend, colleague or relative may have had a positive experience with for the relevant category. That first stage ran for four weeks, after which the top five in each category then moved on to the second stage, where the public had twelve weeks to vote for their favourite.

This year saw a record amount of votes cast, with over 50,000 being cast across all categories throughout the campaign with the winners being announced during a special awards presentation day on Wednesday 24th November. Well done to all those nominated – and a huge congratulations to the winners and those who were highly commended.
