Think Forward Initiative Named 'Most Empowering Financial Decision Making Initiative'

Posted on October 07, 2020

The Think Forward Initiative - and our partners at AWS, the Centre for Economic Policy Research, Dell Technologies, Deloitte, IBM and ING - are proud to announce that Acquisition International Magazine has named us ‘Most Empowering Financial Decision Making Initiative – Europe’ in their Worldwide Finance Awards 2020.

Now in its seventh year, these awards are designed to highlight and reward the achievement of those organisations in the financial sphere, ‘who continuously overcome the difficulties posed by the ongoing global economic issues’.

We’re delighted to be recognised in this way, and hope that our work in the next 12 months, not only meets but exceeds the standards that helped us attain it.

““It is great to be acknowledged for the impact we make in the lives of millions of people across Europe. However, the financial health challenge is more present than ever. We are relentless in our journey to keep empowering people to make better financial decisions.””

Joep Arends, Deloitte Innovation Producer and TFI Innovation Hub Lead

The global finance landscape never stops moving. Never stops making strides, even – as it turns out – in the face of a pandemic. As the world’s industries found themselves suddenly unable to conduct business, many establishments in finance continued to operate, fuelled by years of innovation that almost seemed to prepare them for such a circumstance. Indeed, while we may think of brick and mortar stalwarts when we think of banking and finance, there are many that operate on a more digital plane. These businesses encapsulate the ethos of finance – constant development, agility and dynamism.

For this reason, Acquisition International launched the Worldwide Finance Awards five years ago and we continue to recognise those that truly embody the spirit of the greater industry. Awards Coordinator Holly Morris took a moment to comment on the success of the winners.

“These awards showcase the innovation, dedication to client service and sheer hard work of some of the world’s greatest financial companies. Whether you are a financial goliath, or a small, three-person team committed to providing best in class service – we want to offer a sincere congratulations to you all.”’
