Mortgage Strategy Awards 2019: Shortlist Announced

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and while festive celebrations are in full swing, so too are preparations for the 2019 Mortgage Strategy Awards.

On 26 March next year, the great and the good of the mortgage world will come together once again to celebrate those individuals and firms who went the extra mile to improve all elements of their businesses in the last 12 months.

Known as the ‘Oscars of the mortgage sector’, the accolades are not awarded lightly. Several rounds of shortlisting take place before the judges comb through each entry and allocate points.

As of 2017, interviews have been introduced for the broker categories, ensuring complete transparency and fairness in the judging process. After the interviews, the judges collectively discuss their preferences and, while it is often a tough decision, the majority rules.

Once again, the standard of entrants has been phenomenal, testament to the hard work and dedication to innovation and improvement for which the industry is known.

Those who made the shortlist did exceptionally well to make it so far, given the high standard of the competition so a round of applause goes to each of you.

Now we look ahead to the big night in the spring, so get your glad rags ready and prepare for a night of celebration as we acknowledge both the highs of the past year and the challenges overcome, while toasting all the winners at the Mortgage Strategy Awards 2019 on 26 March at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.

Good luck to all shortlisted!
