Awards 2018

Judges named for B&C Awards 2018

The judging panels for the Bridging & Commercial Awards 2018 have now been decided.

Two panels of industry experts have been chosen to select winners from 18 different categories ahead of the awards ceremony on 7th June at the Hurlingham Club, Fulham.

On 26th April, judges will select the top nominees from a longlist of the top 10 polled in each category, with the shortlist then announced by B&C.

Voting for the longlist opened last week.

The two panels – one of brokers and another comprising lenders – will then gather in London on 18th May to decide the fate of all shortlisted nominees, with brokers judging the lender categories and lenders judging the broker categories.

Adam Tyler, chairman of the Financial Intermediary & Broker Association (FIBA) and Nicola Firth, CEO of Knowledge Bank will chair the broker and lender judging panels respectively.

Winners will be selected using the panels’ expertise and supporting documentation, such as references.

A full explanation of the awards process can be found on the dedicated B&C Awards 2018 page.
