To nominate a deserving individual for any of the categories, please enter your nominations here.

The shortlists will be drawn up in each category based on the number and spread of nominations for a particular individual. Those nominees that make the shortlist in each category are then asked to submit a supporting testimonial based on the following criteria:
– Achievements the individual has delivered in the last 12 months
– Strengths that deliver value to their role and the marketplace they serve
– Any positive contributions made to the wider intermediary market beyond the contribution to their business performance.

Following this, a respected industry panel is then used to assess the testimonials and decide the winners. The award winners will be revealed at an awards ceremony in central London on 25 May 2017.
