Edinburgh based financial technology company, Nucleus, won a brace of awards at last year’s ceremony with their award-winning financial wrapper platform taking the Best Financial Services Product. 2016 also saw Nucleus picking up other items of silverware including Schroders Platform of the Year, a place in the London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain and attaining five stars in the 2016 FT Advisor Online Service Awards.

Following their success in securing this coveted award, FreeAgent went on to hit the headlines when they raised over £10 million with their initial public offering on London’s Alternative Investment Market. The online accounting software company formalised and extended its relationship with the Royal Bank of Scotland earlier this year and their financial software is now available to all RBS and Natwest business account customers.
