Midsummer and Model Awards: It's a Great Time to Submit!
1 August 2023
Is your firm doing great things with technology? Do you want external recognition from a globally recognized independent arbiter of financial technology excellence? And do you want to toss your hat in the ring easily and cheaply? Then Celent’s Model Awards Program is for you, and the summer lull is a great time to cross the submission off your to-do list.
We recognize excellence in the usage of technology through our annual Model Awards Program, which includes the Model Insurer, Model Bank, Model Wealth Manager, Model Risk Manager, Model Sell Side and Model Buy Side awards. Submissions for our 2024 program are now open, and close October 13, 2023.
There’s no cost to submit a nomination, and we’ve strived to make the submission process as easy as possible (but no easier!). We’re looking for implemented technology projects from financial institutions that show innovation, business benefits, and technical excellence. Past winners are from around the globe and range from remote community firms to systemically important financial institutions. A Celent analyst will write a case study of your winning initiative and it will join our vast library of hundreds of reports tracing the evolution of financial technology over the last seventeen years.
A full overview of the Model Awards Program has frequently asked questions, previous winners, publicity guidelines, and a nomination worksheet to share with colleagues. For those interested in even more details, check out our handy “how-to” guide. Although it was originally written for banking, it’s applicable to every sort of submission.
We're looking forward to hearing from you; please get in touch if you have any questions!
