UK‐ITALY BUSINESS AWARDS: OBJECTWAY AWARDED THE ELITE AWARD
Objectway Group was awarded the Elite Award, part of the UK‐Italy Business Awards, the annual event during which the British government formally recognises the contribution of Italian companies that have chosen the UK as a key market for their international business development.
Objectway, with an interest held by Futurimpresa SGR, an institutional fund comprising the Chambers of Commerce of Milan, Bergamo, Brescia and Como, was awarded the Elite Award for its growth strategy in the UK market.
This prize has been awarded for the first time this year and is dedicated to companies that are part of the
Italian Stock Exchange ELITE program, aimed to support unlisted SMEs in their growth and internationalisation strategy.
In 2013, Objectway Group opened a branch in London, to better serve its customers (including JM Finn,
Brewin Dolphin, Ingenious Asset Management and Speirs & Jeffrey) and to further increase business in the
United Kingdom and in ENlish-speaking countries. The Group has also started an expansion plan in the
area through acquisitions.
"The UK market - says Luigi Marciano, CEO and Founder of Objectway - has a strategic role in the international expansion of our Group, a leading producer of software platforms and IT services to financial institutions. The Elite Award is an important recognition of the development path led in these years and represents a stimulus to continue our growth. In 2014 we will continue to explore the market in view of possible acquisitions that will allow us to further expand the positioning of Objectway’s wealth management software solutions in the UK."
"We are proud Objectway has been given this award, - comments Luigi Glarey, CEO of Futurimpresa SGR – as this proves the winning choice made by the Fund to support the growth strategy of the Group."
The UK-Italy Business Awards, organised by the British Consulate-General in Milan and UK Trade &
Investment in collaboration with the Italian Stock Exchange - London Stock Exchange Group, each year
recognise Italian excellence through companies - both large Italian firms and young and innovative startups
- who were able to seize the business opportunities offered in the United Kingdom. The Ceremony took
place on 23rd January in Milan and was attended by Michael Fallon, Minister of State for Business and
Energy, Christopher Prentice CMG, HM Ambassador to Italy, Vic Annells, HM Consul General and Director
General of UKTI Italy, Raffaele Jerusalmi, CEO of the Italian Stock Exchange and Massimo Tononi, Chairman
of the Italian Stock Exchange.
