MICAP, the revolutionary online platform and comparison engine for tax-efficient alternative investments, has announced its support of the Growth Investor Awards as sponsor of the Industry Game Changer award.
Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director of Intelligent Partnership, commented: “Open to any organisation putting investment to work in SMEs, the Growth Investor Awards recognise those enabling start up and ‘scale up’ businesses to realise their full potential and drive Britain’s continued economic recovery. The Awards are part of IP’s mission to make alternative investment more accessible to advisers whilst enabling providers to evolve their offering and the fund management ecosystem – a vision shared with MICAP and its game-changing platform.”
The Industry Game Changer award recognizes an individual, company, product or platform provider that has demonstrably changed practice, perception or engagement in the tax-efficient investment industry.
Andy Marris, CEO of MI Capital Research (MICAP) commented: “MICAP is delighted to sponsor the Industry Game Changer award. The alternative investment industry is evolving as new entrants make it more competitive and drive innovation. Meeting the growing demand for a quick and easy, whole of market comparison of tax efficient investments, MICAP enables advisers to match the right product to the right client. By saving advisers valuable time on research, administration and compliance MICAP is helping to transform the industry.”
Following an initial shortlist in July, finalist entries in each award category have been submitted for a second round of judging by an independent panel to ensure a robust assessment. All of the winners will be announced at a black tie dinner at the Marriott Grosvenor Square on Thursday 22 October.
Alex Evans, Content Director of Intelligent Partnership commented: “Our panel of 35 independent judges are looking for evidence of innovation in products and services as well as impact on investee performance. All of the judges’ scores will be collated to determine the winner and to generate a Feedback Report – so all finalists will receive feedback on areas of improvement. This aligns with Intelligent Partnership’s mission to enable improvement through industry research and analysis – and creates value for everyone participating in the Growth Investor Awards.”
