Money Management deputy editor Charlotte Richards took the prize for Investment Article of the year at last night’s Unbiased.co.uk Media Awards.
Charlotte’s feature on the ‘Cult of the Fund Manager’, published in the immediate wake of Neil Woodford’s departure from Invesco Perpetual, saw Steven Wynne-Jones from sponsors Cofunds present her with the gong at a gala event in London.
She beat off competition from a field studded with Money Management alumni, including Holly Black, now at the Daily Mail, and the Investor’s Chronicle’s Daniel Liberto. Ruth Gillbe and Emma Ann Hughes from our online sister, FTAdviser, were also shortlisted. Emma was also highly commended in the Protection Article of the Year category.
The Mail on Sunday’s Jeff Prestridge – another former Money Management deputy – took home the Consumer Article of the Year award.
Advisers recognised in various categories included Alan Lakey of Highclere Financial Services, Jason Hollands of TilneyBestinvest, Craig Palfrey of Penguin Wealth, David Hollingworth of London & Country Mortgages and Wingate Financial Planning’s Alistair Cunningham, who took the award for Social Media Adviser of the Year
Carl Lamb of Almary Green was named overall Adviser of the Year, while Chase De Vere’s Patrick Connolly took the Judges’ Award.
