Mortgage Strategy Awards 2015
Mortgage Strategy Awards 2015

In just under 10 weeks the great and the good of our industry will gather to celebrate excellence within the mortgage market.

Over the years, the Mortgage Strategy Awards evening has become the premier event in the industry’s calendar and winning one of our prestigious awards is deemed the ultimate honour.

This year’s entries have been as competitive as ever, with each of the 27 categories fiercely contested by some truly fantastic businesses.

Our industry has experienced a lot of upheaval over the past few years but it is a testament to the people working in it that they have adapted and continued to achieve such high levels of excellence.

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to submit nominations, and particularly the judges, who put in a huge amount of effort in deciding the shortlists and eventual winners.

We would love to see you on 17 February at the Grosvenor House Hotel. So if you would like to book your place, click here or call Sophie Bowden on 0207 970 4360.

Finally, we would like to wish the nominees the best of luck and we hope you all enjoy the evening.
