Incisive Media’s journalists scooped three of the eight gongs at the prestigious 2019 Kames Capital Awards – for the second year running.
Professional Pensions’ six-strong editorial team won institutional team of the year for the fourth year in succession.
PP’s deputy editor James Phillips was also named institutional journalist of the year, with editor Jonathan Stapleton runner up.
This is Phillips’ second major award of the year. In July, he was named pensions journalist of the year by the Society of Pension Professionals.
Meanwhile, Investment Week’s deputy news editor Mike Sheen walked away with the prize for wholesale journalist of the year, with special projects correspondent David Brenchley as runner up.
The Kames Capital Awards celebrate excellence in investment journalism. The categories are judged by a panel of industry experts from the institutional and wholesale markets. This year’s awards took place on November 28 in London.
Incisive Media’s group editorial director Adrian Barrick said: ’’Hearty congratulations to all the winners of these prestigious awards, which pit our journalists directly against their peers. The categories are also judged by true experts in the sector, so there are no hiding places.’’
He continued: ’’The fact that James, Mike and the Professional Pensions team came out on top is testament to the enduring quality of the writing on our titles and the importance to our readers of the stories that our journalists tell.’’
Kevin Sinclair, managing director of Incisive Media’s financial division said:’ “It’s great to see members of our editorial teams recognised for their excellent coverage of the investment and pensions markets. We believe our journalists are the best in the business, and these awards confirm we are right!’’
In 2018, both Professional Pensions and Investment Week won team of the year awards, and PP’s Stephanie Baxter won the institutional journalist prize.
