Digital challenger banks enjoyed success at last night’s Payments Awards, with Starling Bank and ClearBank both picking up two awards each.

The sixth annual industry event was held at the Grosvenor Square Marriott hotel in London, with a record number of entries across the 24 categories.

Starling Bank took home the Personal Finance App of the Year award, along with the prize for PSD2 or Open Banking Initiative of the Year. The judges suggested that Starling’s proposition was “all about the marketplace” and questioned “could Starling become the Amazon of banking?”

ClearBank meanwhile won the Payments Infrastructure Award, and chief executive Nick Ogden was deemed to be the Payments Pioneer of the year. The judges commented that Ogden “understands market opportunity and how to exploit it for real commercial advantage, not just mesmerising investors and hypnotising the media”.
