CFAwards2015.jpgTonight in London, the Corporate & Financial Awards celebrated successful financial communications in Europe.

Both agency and in-house communicators for the City and its influencers filled a room at the London Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square for the opportunity to celebrate the industry’s most inspiring campaigns and projects.

Over the course of the night, 18 gold trophies were awarded in addition to the ‘Best in-house corporate and financial communications team’ and ‘Best IR agency or PR consultancy’ awards, which were given away towards the end of the ceremony to Amec Foster Wheeler and Lansons respectively.

Lansons was also awarded two golds on the night for its work with Co-op Bank and won a highly commended award for its work with unbiased.co.uk. When Co-op was at risk of going into receivership, reputation became a key concern. Lansons built a narrative around Co-op’s turnaround plan and the steps it took resulted in the bank’s survival and the continued loyalty of its customers.

VTB Capital also performed particularly well at the Corporate & Financial Awards, winning three golds for ‘Best meeting’, ‘Most innovative financial communications’ and ‘Best management of investor and analyst relations’. With its corporate communications strategy, VTB Capital has succeeded in forging new relationships and maintaining old ones at a very challenging time in the Russian investment industry. Other strong performers on the night include Lundquist, who also won three golds, and Radley Yeldar, who won two.

On 7 July, 300 people attended the fourth Corporate & Financial Awards, which were hosted by British business journalist Simon Jack, who currently features on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme.
