Systems In The City Awards 2013

Each year Goodacre organises an Awards Ceremony in recognition of the Systems Suppliers within the Financial Services Industry. This year the Awards Ceremony took place on 19th June 2013 at The Grand Connaught Rooms in London. This event took the form of an evening Champagne Reception, sponsored by Cofunds, followed by dinner, the Awards presentation and evening entertainment.

A prerequisite for nominees was that products and services had to reach a high standard before entries to the Awards could be accepted. 38 firms received the GoodAccreditation Standard 2013. An independent panel of judges then determined the Award winners based on their performance during the past 12 months.
