Welcome to the 10th annual City A.M. Awards

The tenth annual City A.M. awards promised to be the biggest yet – and it didn’t disappoint!

From dealmakers to entrepreneurs, from fintech superstars to hot-shot lawyers, the City A.M. award winners all demonstrate the ambition and enterprise that is at the heart of London’s finance and professional services community.
