Financial Services Awards 2022
The first iteration of the FS Awards will take place in the Mansion House, Dublin on the 27th October 2022. In partnership with KPMG, Ireland INC and Business & Finance, this event is geared towards thought leadership, networking and enabling connections. It is an opportunity to inspire and influence FS organisations to reach higher levels at the FS Leaders Summit, where the brightest minds in the field explore the sector’s reinvention and the challenges of the modernisation of finance, investment, regulation, banking, and payment services will bring.
Ian Nelson, a member of the judging panel and Head of Financial Services and Head of Regulatory at KPMG, said:
“The financial services industry in Ireland is a vital component of our economy, and we are pleased to support the recognition of businesses, groups, and individuals who have made significant contributions to Ireland’s status as one of the world’s top financial services hubs. These awards provide the industry with a great chance to highlight market-leading activities in banking, payments, insurance, asset management, and the ever-expanding fintech sector. We also anticipate recognising noteworthy achievements in sustainability, diversity and inclusion, areas that are crucial to the industry and important to KPMG.”
