Systems In The City Awards 2015

Each year Goodacre organises an Awards Ceremony in recognition of the Systems Suppliers within the Financial Services Industry.  In 2015 the Awards Ceremony took place on Thursday 9th July at Merchant Taylors' Hall in London. This event took the form of a Cocktail Reception, sponsored by Clearstream Banking, followed by a Gala Lunch and the Awards Presentation. The event was hosted by Mary Nightingale from ITV News. 

 The event sponsors were: Allfunds Bank, Clearstream Banking, Crealogix MBA, Dion Global Solutions, Equiniti, JHC and Platform Securities.

 A prerequisite for nominees was that products and services had to reach a high standard before entries to the Awards could be accepted. 41 firms received the GoodAccreditation Standard 2015. An independent panel of judges then determined the Award winners based on their performance during the past 12 months.
