We are delighted to announce that FNZ won the top award at the Scottish Financial Services Awards 2019 last night (24th October).

FNZ was presented with the ‘Impact and Investment Award’ in recognition of our impressive business growth and our contribution to Scotland as a financial service sector - as well as our commitment to making a positive social impact.

This recognition is an extremely positive accolade for the FNZ business, not only in Scotland, but for our global business as a whole.

The judges were impressed that Scotland's first 'unicorn' fintech business hires over 400 people in our Edinburgh office, with around 29 different nationalities represented, and through our newly expanded graduate scheme will hire many more highly talented people over the coming years.

FNZ was also shortlisted as a finalist for the 2nd award of the night, the “Pioneer” award - the only company who achieved this. This was in recognition of launching the world’s first blockchain powered market infrastructure for the asset management industry and for our dedication to innovation.

We now employ over 2,000 people world-wide, partner with 60 financial institutions, and are responsible for £400 billion assets under administration.

Philip Grant, Scottish Financial Enterprise Chairman, said:
“Many congratulations to the winners of the Scottish Financial Services Awards 2019. FNZ have set the bar high in terms of what a Scottish-based financial services company can achieve on the international stage and are a deserving winner of the Impact and Investment Award.”
