- Every year, Savvy Investor's Research Team uploads over 10,000 papers to the Savvy Investor site, providing them with a unique platform from which to judge the Awards.
- The judging panel consists of six members of the Savvy Investor Content Team, who all have professional backgrounds in fund management or investment content. The panel is chaired by the CEO, Andrew Perrins, who has held senior positions as Head of Asset Allocation at leading asset management firms.
- The selection process begins with the creation of a list of around 250 papers, selected on the basis of Savvy Investor's initial rating of the paper and member engagement. This will include any papers nominated by members or companies.
- The quality of these papers is assessed by the judging panel, based on the following criteria:
- Substance and depth–is the content going to engage and stimulate the reader?
- Presentation and prose–is it attractive and well written?
- Relevance to Savvy Investor's readership–is the paper well targeted and is it still relevant today?
- Is the paper objective–not pushing a product or a service?
- Is the paper a good fit for the category in question?
