The winners of the 2014 Moneyfacts Awards were announced last night at a glittering ceremony in the Pavilion at the Tower of London, this year being particularly poignant as it celebrated 25 years of the Moneyfacts brand.

Hundreds of industry professionals from leading financial institutions gathered at the special dinner, hosted by comedian and TV presenter Hardeep Singh Kohli, with the awards highlighting the best that the financial services industry has to offer. Winners were those providers whose products and service levels have consistently performed over the last 12 months, and everyone was clamouring to hear the results.

So, just who stepped away with new additions for their mantelpiece? Well, Halifax emerged as the biggest winner of the night, walking away with no less than four awards – Best Online Mortgage Provider, Best Current Account Provider, Best Card Provider (Introductory Rate) and Personal Finance Provider of the Year – as well as being Commended in another category (again in the Best Card sector, this time for their balance transfer rates) for good measure.

HSBC was close behind however with a grand total of three awards showing their prowess in the mortgage sector – Best Variable Rate Mortgage Provider, Best Remortgage Provider and Best Bank Mortgage Provider – while Norwich & Peterborough and Yorkshire building societies walked away with two awards each, as did Yorkshire/Clydesdale Bank.

Sylvia Waycot, Publishing Director of Moneyfacts, said: "The winners and finalists at this year's Moneyfacts Awards can be rightly proud of their achievements, which are based on providing products that best meet the needs of their customers. The Moneyfacts Awards showcases providers that continue to demonstrate a firm commitment to quality and choice across a wide range of products, at a time when the sector's success and growth have never been more important."

A total of 28 awards were presented, covering the length and breadth of the financial world (click here for the full list). Congratulations to all the winners and good luck for next year!
