The event, held at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, London, was blessed with fine weather and a modern, airy location.
A total of 28 awards were announced on the night, with Stephen Catlin receiving the lifetime achievement of the year award.
Hiscox's honorary president Robert Hiscox, who won the Lifetime Achievement Award last year, gave the guest speech on the importance of customer service, and how the banking industry has failed the UK customer in that respect.
