Each Game Changer Award is given on merit and based on research conducted by the Finance Monthly editorial and research team. Competing with other leading cloud based businesses from a wide range of industry sectors such as Banking and Automotive through to fast moving sectors such as FinTech, Telecoms and Gig economy companies, the W2 team were particularly delighted to hear of this award.

The FStech Awards recognise excellence and innovation in the field of information technology within the UK and EMEA financial services sector. The 2018 winners are going to be revealed at a glittering gala dinner in March, where trophies will be presented to financial services institutions and technology suppliers who have led the way in areas such as customer service, compliance, mobile, online, systems integration, outsourcing and data management.


In November 2017, W2 was included in the Global Tech RegTech 100 list of companies by FinTech Global. It was selected by a panel of analysts and industry experts as one of the most innovative in the RegTech space that they believe financial institutions should become aware of in 2018 as they look for solutions to address the challenges and opportunities they face.

In the CorporateLiveWire Technology Awards 2017/18, W2 was voted ’Most Outstanding in Online Screening Tools’. The judging panel decided upon the most deserving companies based on their achievements over the previous 12 months.

W2 was shortlisted for two Emerging Payments Association (EPA) awards in 2017, ‘Best New Back Office Innovation’ and ‘Best Service Organisation supporting the Emerging Payments Industry’. EPA awards are highly regarded by the FinTech industry.

W2 also won ‘Most Outstanding for Financial Software Systems – UK’ in the 2017 Global Excellence Awards by Acquisition International, dedicated to Corporate Finance for CEOs and other high-level decision makers.

Earlier in 2017, W2 won CV Magazine’s Technology Innovator Awards for ‘Fastest Growing Financial Technology Company – UK’.

Another recognition for W2 in 2017 when it was shortlisted by SBC news for ‘Best Payment Product’ in the SBC awards.


In 2016, W2 was shortlisted for the also highly regarded Payments Awards in the best ‘Anti-Fraud Payment Solution of the year category’.

Another CV Magazine award for W2 came in 2016 when it won two awards, one for ‘Innovation in Financial Technology’ and a second one for ‘Customer Excellence in Computing’.


In 2015, a fairly young company still, W2 won the prestigious Emerging Payments Association (EPA) award for ‘Best Security Anti-Fraud Programme’.

In the same year, 2015, W2 was a finalist at the Cards International awards.
