Aldermore secures Gold in the Communicate Corporate & Financial Awards 2016

Aldermore’s Corporate Affairs team was this week awarded ‘Gold’ at the Corporate & Financial Awards for ‘Best IPO Communications’. The awards, run by Communicate Magazine, celebrate excellence in all aspects of City communications.

The team received the accolade for its creation and execution of a 12 month external communications programme to support the Bank’s IPO. This programme involved building Aldermore’s profile in the UK media to develop awareness of the Bank’s history, strategy and outlook. This was particularly important to effectively differentiate Aldermore in the crowded challenger bank space, including those banks that were looking to raise money through an IPO at a similar time.

Commenting on the win, Holly Marshall, Director of Corporate Affairs at Aldermore, said: “I’m delighted that our Corporate Affairs and Investor Relations teams have been recognised for their work on the Bank’s successful IPO. Collecting the award was a very proud moment for all of us. The IPO was a highly complex project involving multiple deliverables and an intense period for the team.

“I would also like to thank our agency FTI Consulting, for their advice, support and expertise during the IPO process. Their support was invaluable and they helped make it a huge success.”
