Investment Journalist of the Year (B2B)
WINNER: DANIEL GROTE, NEW MODEL ADVISER
Unless you were living on Mars during 2019, it was hard – in terms of investment stories at least - to avoid any mention about goings-on to do with a certain fund manager by the name of Neil Woodford, plus the shenanigans that took place at his eponymously-named fund management business.
When it came to the submissions for this category, one name stood out in the opinions of the judges, so it’s a huge well done to New Model Adviser’s Daniel Grote who, by common consent, stood head and shoulders above his peers to scoop the award in this category.
“Out of all the pieces submitted by everybody, it’s easiest for Daniel to show impact; he has broken or extended key parts of the story and has been cited as a key source on it,” one judge commented. “Outstanding. Daniel epitomised real journalism in 2019. He’s managed to combine a sharp eye for detail, hard graft and data analysis into his submission,” another added.
