New Model Adviser's Editor Will Robins collects Award on behalf of Jack Gilbert, from CEO of Defaqto John Milliken and Awards Host Marcus Brigstocke


This category saw a very strong line-up of contenders confirmed by the scores awarded after the initial judging stage. A lively final judging session eventually picked New Model Adviser’s Jack Gilbert as the winner. 

“Jack has brilliant investigative abilities and delivers for his audience” with “excellent sourcing of exclusives and an ability to break serious financial news”, said one judge. He is “breaking news that matters” and there was “real breadth to his submission” added another.
