CELENT Model Awards

Every year, we recognize excellence in the usage of technology through our Model Insurer, Model Bank, Model Risk Manager, Model Wealth Manager, Model Sell Side, and Model Buy Side Awards.

The awards recognize a financial institution’s effective use of technology in different areas, often representing a best practice, and are designed to answer the deceptively simple question: What would it look like for a firm to do everything right with today’s technology?

Of course, no firm is a “Model” firm across the board. Therefore, we focus on specific real-world examples of individual technology initiatives. Case studies for the winning initiatives will be presented through our annual reports detailing how and what they did to succeed.

Our nomination window for the 2022 program closed on October 15, 2021. However, we encourage you to prepare your nominations for our 2023 Model Awards program!

Winners will be announced at next year's Innovation and Insight event on March 15-17, 2022. View our 2021 Innovation and Insight Week hub page to see last year's winners and watch our live session replays.
