An independent panel of experts from across fintech and financial services judge the awards every year

An independent panel of judges is chosen each year, comprised of respected professionals. The panel is carefully selected through a fair and objective selection process and includes experts from across fintech and financial services.

The judges are bound by a strict confidentiality agreement and are required to declare any conflict of interest in award submissions over which they deliberate and to stand aside from deliberations concerning those submissions.

Judges give their time for free to judge the awards.
