Cuan Coulter, State Street UK country head, said: “With a record-breaking number of entries surpassing the 200 mark this year, the awards continue to recognise outstanding journalism and acknowledge the vital role that the financial media play as educators and information providers in a rapidly moving sector and news cycle.”
