About the Banking Technology Awards


***Entry is now closed for the 2014 Banking Technology Awards and the shortlist will be announced at the end of September 2014***

The 15th annual Banking Technology Awards will take place on 20th November at the Tower Hotel in London. The incredibly successful Awards have become established as the premier event recognising excellence in the use of IT in financial services.

The Readers' Choice Awards and the Banking Technology Judged Awards will be handed out at a glitzy black tie ceremony and dinner hosted by top comedian Lucy Porter.

A finalist on Channel 4's So You Think You're Funny?, Lucy is a regular on Radio 4 panel and comedy shows, amd has also appeared a number of times on Have I Got News For You and Mock the Week.

Each year the event has grown as an ever-wider pool of entrants vie for the recognition that the Awards confer on their efforts – from small regional banks in central Europe and Africa to industry behemoths with multi-million budgets and global projects, all are put under the scrutiny of our expert judging panel.

The 2013 event was a huge success and was attended by more than 300 senior banking and financial technology executives.


Banking Technology began publication in 1984 as two waves of change swept over the financial services sector: deregulation of the banking industry and the microcomputer revolution that made business computing affordable.

Thirty years on, and the industry is now being re-regulated at the same time as a global mobile revolution is giving ubiquitous connectivity to smartphone-enabled consumers. The ‘big bang’ that deregulated investment banking may have peaked as re-regulation gathers pace post-crash and HFT comes under increasing scrutiny but the technological ‘big bang’ is on-going and encouraging a strengthening move from branch to digital banking and automated trading.

Taking this as a starting point the Banking Technology Forum 2014 event, co-located with the prestigious annual Banking Technology Awards and in recognition of the title’s 30th anniversary year, will consider the state of the industry at this new technological turning point.

Avoiding nostalgia and futurology, the 30th anniversary conference on 20 November at the Tower Hotel, London, will examine the lessons of the past and ask what the major trends and developments of the next few years will be. To find out how we got here and where the FS and fintech world is going, attendee at this in-depth Forum is recommended for directors, CTOs, CIOs, CISO and other banking technologists.
