Wednesday 19 May – The Growth Investor Awards 2021 announces its return to a live in-person awards ceremony with the inclusion of Kin Fund Services as sponsor for the category of Growth Investor of the Year.

The Growth Investor of the Year award will be presented at a black-tie awards ceremony on the evening of Thursday November 4, 2021 at our new prestigious venue, London Hilton on Park Lane.

The coveted Growth Investor of the Year award recognises outstanding investment managers demonstrating the best investment performance, the best product and service developments, and the best ‘impact beyond investment’ for customers and the wider business community.

Richard Hoskins, Director at the firm, commented: “The Growth Investor of the Year award has become a real yardstick for the most ambitious and dedicated investment managers in our community. We firmly believe that these firms play an invaluable role in fuelling the sort of huge and innovative growth the UK needs to not only combat the pandemic’s costly economic consequences, but also to lead the country to post-Brexit out-performance.”

In this seventh year of the awards, we’re proud that our winners and our audience will be at the forefront of the ‘investment-led recovery’ that the UK government has tasked with leading the nation back to economic prosperity.

Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director at Intelligent Partnership, the organiser of the awards says, “This is a year in which the growth investment industry has had to show exactly what it’s made of and it hasn’t disappointed. AIM recovered faster and performed better than the main markets, income investments remained open for business and paying returns, investment inflows rose, and resilient and versatile incumbents acted swiftly to keep businesses funded and exploit new opportunities.

He adds, “We shouldn’t underestimate the expertise and experience that went into those outcomes at a time of phenomenal uncertainty, massive volatility and enforced operational chaos. So, to honour the amazing achievements, we’ll be gathering our deserving finalists and audience for our biggest celebration ever.”

All 19 categories for the Growth Investor Awards are now open for entries until July 13. More information about the selection process and previous winners is available on the Growth Investor Awards’ website:
