Awards

ELIGIBLE INSTITUTIONS FOR THE MOTOR FINANCE: EUROPE CONFERENCE AND AWARDS 2016 INCLUDE:

The 2nd Motor Finance Europe Awards 2016 will take place on 07 April at the Steigenberger Hof Hotel in Frankfurt

The awards recognise the achievements of the European motor finance industry in 2015.

Companies can nominate in 13 categories including two categories which are awarded to individuals, and these will be awarded by the judging panel without prior nomination. Details of this year’s categories can be found on the tab above.

  • NOMINATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED
  • Submissions can be made either on behalf of your own company or in recognition of a colleague or partner firm.
  • Nominees should follow these simply guidelines to ensure their submission has the best chance of winning.
  • Send your completed nomination to victoria.pennell@timetric.com

Be open about your achievements – Information on submissions labelled CONFIDENTIAL will only be shown to members of the judging panel so please be open about successes. At the same time, even where financial information is in the public domain, please include it to provide a full picture of performance.

Support your opinions with facts – When judges compare companies on various criteria, a company which can quote data on customer satisfaction will be given precedence over one which claims “market-leading service quality” without evidence.

Be concise – Bullet points and short paragraphs supported by a couple of charts or graphs are better than long-winded presentations. As guidance, nominations should be between 500-1000 words long.

What makes you unique – In every category, we are looking for companies that stand out from the crowd. When you list the things you do well, don’t forget to emphasise where you feel you are unique among your competitors, or where you do things differently from the rest of the industry.

Follow the guidelines – While you are invited to raise any point you feel strengthens your nomination, we recommend clearly and directly addressing each point listed in the category criteria (see the link at the top of the page) – this allows judges to easily compare like with like, and will make sure there are no areas in which your nomination has nothing to say for itself.

Keep it current – Remember that in almost all categories, the award title contains the words “of the year”. For maximum impact, please refer to developments made and performance achieved in the last 12 months. While a record of success won’t hurt a nomination, it is the most recent activity that will win awards for nominees.


Whilst we recommend you to try to submit against as many of the criteria as possible, we appreciate that for some companies this may not be possible.  The more you can respond against the stronger your application will be, but we would like to highlight that submitting against all criteria is not mandatory.   Should you require further guidance on this please contact Victoria Pennell – victoria.pennell@timetric.com. Good luck in your submissions!

    performance of the finance company in terms of finance penetration within
    the brands, and contribution to group profits/revenue

Intermediary

– Be it broker or dealer,
intermediaries are the life blood of the industry, and vital for introducing

challenges.  Specifically, judges will look at:

    a thorough approach to affordability and credit checking, without overly
    effecting response times

    helps its clients to identify improvement to fleet productivity
  • How individual
    client needs are taken into account.
  • Evidence of
    strategic progress over the past 12 months.

New Entrant of the Year – This award is designed to acknowledge companies which have entered
the market over the past 12 months, and really looked to shake things up. 
We’re not just looking for lenders here, but anyone who can demonstrate what
makes their new business stand out, and how it will improve the industry.
Specifically, judges will be considering

  • What
    is the USP of the business? Does it do anything to differentiate itself from
    the existing players in the market?

    gap in the market has the new entrant filled, or is planning on filling?

    are you plans for the future?

  • The flexibility of the providers
    range?

finance product which strikes the best balance between offering customers a
good deal and ensuring a sustainable business for the company in
question.  Specifically, judges will be looking at:

  • The
    specifics of how the product works

    customer would choose this product over an alternative
  • Evidence of customer
    satisfaction being balanced with a need for sustainable business practises

Innovator
of the Year
– The fast growing motor
finance industry has seen a number of new players enter the market, while
existing companies have looked to expand their offerings.  This award is
for the company which has stood out amongst its peers in taking a unique
approach to the business, and begun offering something truly different.

Rising
Star of the Year  
– Motor finance is famously
an industry of experienced heads who know their industry like the back of their
hands.  This can make standing out a difficult task for newer members of
the industry, and this award looks to help highlight someone under the age of
35.  The winner does not need to have yet risen to a senior job, but will
need to be someone who can evidence the positive impact they have had on the
motor finance industry.

Industry Ambassador of the Year – This award will go to an
individual who has been instrumental in shaping the motor finance
industry  during the course of their career – whether that be through

influencer among their leasing industry peers, even among the wider business
community.
