London Finance Professionals Fear Impact Of Economic Instability



London & South East Finance Awards: 65% of London finance professionals think economic instability will have biggest impact on them this year.


A poll has found that over two-thirds of finance professionals and teams across London and the South East think that economic instability will have the biggest single impact on their operations this year.


The London & the South East Finance Awards is a one-of-a-kind accolade which recognises those finance teams and individuals who have navigated less than favourable economic conditions to achieve some incredible things in the region.


Businesses from across the capital and South East can now submit entries for the Awards – hosted by leading recruitment firm Robert Walters in partnership with ACCA, HSBC, CFGI and Mills & Reeve.


Following on from the resounding success of its inaugural launch last year – the awards are now back for a second instalment, recognising outstanding individuals and teams in 22 categories. The deadline for entries will be Friday 5th July, applications will then be judged by a panel of the region’s industry leaders.


Elliot Jackson, Director at Robert Walters UK comments:

“Over 750 finance professionals, teams and businesses came together last year to celebrate the first London & South East Finance Awards – it was a fantastic night of amazing stories, celebrations and great company."

“This year will be even bigger, an unmissable event for the finance community. Now is the time to start working on your entries!”


Abdul Goffar, Director of ACCA UK comments:

“ACCA is proud to be partnering with Robert Walters, HSBC, CFGI and Mills & Reeve for the second year of the London Finance Awards!. Last year gave us the unique opportunity to celebrate the finance professionals and finance teams who propelled many businesses to success in what was a very difficult year for many."

“We cannot wait to hear the incredible stories and accomplishments of those powering the capital’s finance industry this year.”


Matt Osborne, Head of Corporate Banking, London at HSBC comments: “HSBC are delighted to be supporting the London & South East Finance Awards for a second time. We welcome another opportunity to recognise and highlight the industrious work of our local finance community. I look forward to reviewing the applications of the capital’s finest financial talent.”

Greg Taylor, Managing Partner at CFGI comments: “The continued challenging macro-environment has been difficult for many but it is often in these types of conditions that the excellent work of many finance professionals, teams and leaders, is particularly vital and there is much to be commended and celebrated."

“The awards event last year was a truly special evening, celebrating the successes of finance professionals across London and the South east – one that we very much look forward to being a part of it again this year.”

Andrew Secker, Partner at Mills & Reeve comments:

“We are excited to be sponsoring the London and South East Finance Awards for the first time.”
