Now in its 6th year the New European Economy Awards were established to celebrate excellence, achievement and best practice in the international finance and commerce milieu.

Created to identify and celebrate the leading service providers across the Europe and beyond, the NEE Awards are presented to industry leaders, individuals, teams and organisations that represent the benchmark of success in financial services and related industries

The NEE awards panel is chaired by Editor Michael Ansner and assesses a broad range of criteria via some of the most experienced operators in business and journalism. The panel have been briefed to maintain independence and avoid the usual award pitfalls of bias.

Rather than the usual sequence of back-slapping, the NEE Awards have a more salient objective – to celebrate good service, irrespective of the size and scope of the recipient candidate. It is our mission to spread the word and eradicate the humdrum obstacles of international business and champion innovative service providers across worldwide commerce.

The NEE awards are an independent programme designed to recognise and promote excellence. Our panel of experts will consider criteria like company size, service quality, depth and breadth of practice, commitment and reputation. It’s our mission to create an inclusive and truthful picture of quality service providers rather than a landscape dominated by large global network blue-chips.

Of course, our aim is not to positively discriminate in favour of smaller firms, but provide recognition for quality of service from end users. As such, the key virtues for voters to consider are innovation, originality and quality of product, as well as evidence of market development and excellence in client representation.

We believe that it’s important to build confidence within our network and create trust more readily between users and providers – and your votes are helping to smooth out the creases and bring the New European business community closer together.
