If you work within the UK mortgage industry, you are eligible to self-nominate, have your say and cast your vote. The nominations and judging process has been further improved to ensure that only the very best in the business are recognised as Mortgage Strategy award winners. The details of this complex process are outlined below.

We have a new nomination & entry system for this year, so please ensure you read our FAQ.



Firms from within the UK mortgage industry are invited to put themselves forward for consideration in the industry vote by completing a short form 

Please note: only one self-nomination per company is required

Subject to approval from the Mortgage Strategy editorial team, firms will be taken forward to the next stage - the industry vote


Industry Vote

The entire UK mortgage industry are given the opportunity to have their say and cast their vote for their top firms of 2021 or nominate any firms not already on the list 

Voters can have their say in as many categories as they’d like 

Companies are welcome to vote for themselves but only one internal vote per company will be counted towards the final total


Entry Forms

All votes are thoroughly reviewed by the mortgage strategy editorial team 

The firms with the highest number of votes in each category are selected to become our longlist 

Longlisted firms are invited to submit entry forms



Our expert panels of industry judges review all entry forms, and their scores and comments create our shortlist. 

Shortlisted brokers and distributors are then invited to attend a short video interview with our judges. Interview times will be communicated in advance. 

Shortlisted lender and provider entries are debated by an industry panel who will decide the winners.
