Financial Reporter is market-leading in its space, offering a clear & unbiased look at the industry as well as the latest comment and opinion from those in the know to an audience of financial intermediaries, lenders and product providers.
2019 has been a year of taking our events offering to new heights – from our highly successful CPD-accredited roadshows across the country to our much-discussed Awards Party - as well as highly-anticipated second Women's Recognition Awards in September. 2020 will see us build on that success as we shake up the format of our coveted #FRAwards and take our events from strength to strength - all with that characteristic Barcadia twist.
With a range of carefully-designed events covering everything from self-employed to later life lending, at venues across the UK, our Roadshows are making broker education better and more accessible.
The Financial Reporter Awards - the most transparent and highly-regarded awards programme in the industry – have support a changing industry by promoting and rewarding those who go above and beyond for a decade now.
Covering everything from the best mortgage provider to the most influential person in the industry, the #FRAwards Winners' Party is always a night to remember, with plenty of surprises thrown in to delight and entertain – and, after a decade in Manchester, the party is moving to London for 2020's unmissable event!
The Financial Reporter Women's Recognition Awards was launched in 2018, aiming to support the growing momentum for a more diverse and equal financial services community.
Now in its third year, the FRWRA saw enormous growth in 2019, doubling the number of nominations, and we aim to continue contributing significantly to making financial services a welcoming space for women in the coming year.
