Press Team of the Year
WINNER: AJ Bell
The winners’ roll-call for this award reads like a who’s who for the cream of money journalism.
Hearty congratulations for first-time winners AJ Bell. 2019 was clearly a good year for the organisation with a strong showing in several of our PR and communications awards categories as voted for by the UK’s financial journalist community.
AJ Bell plc’s PR team manages all corporate, broadcast, retail, trade and local PR in-house with no retained agency. As part of its submission, the company suggested that one thing that sets its PR team apart is that its key spokespeople sit within the PR team. “The team has 75 years combined experience in the financial services industry, with a unique blend of expertise covering PR, journalism, equity analysis and fund management”.
A particular focus over the past year was the listing of AJ Bell on the London Stock Exchange, which was widely acknowledged as one of the most successful listings of the year. In excess of 1,500 articles were generated specifically about the IPO and the first company results announcements, including seven profile pieces of the CEO.
