The 2022 Growth Investor Awards took place last Thursday, 24 November, with a gala dinner and awards ceremony to recognise the best of the growth investing community. The businesses and individuals, who were recognised, received their awards at the London Hilton, Park Lane, in front of 450 guests from across the alternative investments industry.

This year’s awards were hosted once again by TV and radio star Claudia Winkleman, alongside Intelligent Partnership’s founder Guy Tolhurst.

This year was the eighth Growth Investor Awards (GIA) organised by Intelligent Partnership. For almost a decade, GIA has celebrated those businesses and individuals within the financial services and alternative investment industries, who support the UK’s high-growth SMEs and Startups.

The Ingenious Group was recognised by our judges for their outstanding contribution, as our ‘One to Watch’ in the prestigious Best New Product or Service category sponsored by Mainspring Fund Services.

Despite the challenging economic backdrop, the guidance, support, and returns they’ve delivered for their clients, and the businesses they work with, has been so impressive this year.

We are delighted that the judges of the best new product/service category bestowed this award on our flagship estate planning solution, IEP Apex. This is a particularly competitive category as it draws entries from across the whole market, not just from with the business relief sector.

When designing Apex, we set out to create a solution which delivers better outcomes, value and peace of mind for investors by focussing on what matters to them the most. We aimed to construct something which is class leading in terms of speed of IHT mitigation, cost, performance and utility. We did this because it is what investors want, what advisers want and what we could see would be required by the new consumer duty.

These are the points which we made in our entry and it is great to see that the judges not only made this the only BR-qualifying service to be shortlisted in this category, but to go further and specifically recognise it’s anticipated impact in the market, as ‘one to watch’.

Senior Business Development Director of Ingenious

It’s been a challenging year for everyone, that’s why it was amazing to see a room full of the growth investor community celebrating the essential contribution they make to the UK’s fast-growing SMEs and Start-ups.

The Ingenious Group, are right at the heart of this alternative investments community, so it was brilliant to see them commended in such a competitive category. The judges rightly recognised their outstanding contribution this year.
