High level of investment trust constituents in most extensive awards to date


ADVFN today announces the winners of the sixth annual ADVFN International Financial Awards.

The panel-judged awards, which recognise and celebrate the best of breed products and services from across the global financial industry, have honoured 81 companies and individuals – ADVFN’s largest ever awards programme. Winners have been selected from across the spectrum and range from advisers, platform providers and trusts to exchanges, financial journalists and publications.



Many categories have remained consistent since the inception of the awards in 2015, including: Best Execution Only Broker, Self Select ISA Provider of the Year, Best Low Cost Stockbroker, Wealth Manager of the Year and Best CFD Provider with further categories added each year to reflect developments in the global markets and the changing appetites of investors and traders. Best Bullion Exchange, Best ESG Trust and Best Alternative Market are amongst the new additions for 2020. A large tranche of awards has been given to funds and trusts including BlackRock, J.P. Morgan Asset Management and Martin Currie.

Trusts and funds have been a big focus for ADVFN in the last year. Renewed investor enthusiasm in this market saw the 2019 launch of ADVFN’s Funds Showcase.

Full information about all of the categories and winners can be found on the ADVFN International Financial Awards 2020 website: Follow @ADVFN on Twitter for all awards news and on Facebook (#ADVFNawards).

“This year’s all-encompassing awards reflect the variety and diversity of the financial products, information and services currently available to retail investors and traders, and we are delighted to commend all those in the sector that have excelled,” said Clem Chambers, CEO of ADVFN. “2020 has so far been a rollercoaster of a year with current global events impacting heavily on economies and markets.
