Award - Highly Commended

We are thrilled to announce that the Momentum Global Matters Weekly blog was awarded Highly Commended for Best Blog or Blog Series at the Investment Week Marketing and Innovation Awards 2022.

The awards serve to honour excellence and innovation in investment marketing and content campaigns, and the individuals and teams behind them: the professionals that have generated cut-through with messaging that resonates, and marketing with genuine impact. The IMAIAs are about creativity, innovation and customer engagement and seeking to find those who have gone beyond the tried and trusted and found the courage to do something genuinely new.

Our values

Our core values of accountability, integrity, excellence, teamwork, innovation and diversity are at the heart of everything we do; they define how we do business and engage with our clients and internal stakeholders.

While talent, resources and expertise are the cornerstones of any business, it is the ability to truly understand our clients’ needs and work together to deliver an appropriate and differentiated solution that sets us apart: we believe that this is Momentum’s competitive edge.
