The winners of the 2016 Moneyfacts Awards were announced last night at an exclusive event held in the Pavilion at the Tower of London. Hundreds of industry professionals from leading financial institutions gathered at the dinner hosted by comedian Russell Kane, all keen to hear who would take home one of our prestigious accolades.

A total of 29 awards were handed out to deserving winners – together with accolades for those who came Commended and Highly Commended in each category – with the awards ranging from Best Online Mortgage Provider and Best Surveying Service, to Best Current Account Provider and Personal Finance Provider of the Year. Tesco Bank was the provider to take home the latter accolade and proved to be one of the biggest winners of the night, after also scooping the top prize in two other categories and being Commended in two more.

Other big winners included Kent Reliance, Virgin Money and Charter Savings Bank, and interestingly, it wasn't the big boys who necessarily dominated – challenger banks, smaller providers and building societies all held their own, further highlighting the need for consumers to think outside the box when choosing financial products.

"By continuing to offer value, choice and innovation across the personal finance sector, all the finalists and winners at this year's Moneyfacts Awards should be proud of their achievements," said Lee Tillcock, editor of Moneyfacts. "By providing the products and services that best meet the needs of consumers, the Moneyfacts Awards showcase those providers and brokers who have consistently demonstrated a commitment to quality and excellence that will serve them well during the next year."

You can see a full list of the winners below. Congratulations to all involved; we hope you had a fantastic night, and we'll see you next year!
