The prestigious awards ceremony, held this year at the London Lancaster Hotel on 27th March, recognises excellence and innovation in the field of information technology within the UK and EMEA financial services sector.

TM Group  joined the likes of Barclays Bank, LV=, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Nationwide Building Society and Visa Europe/BT to be declared a winner of an award at this year’s ceremony, which was the 14th annual event hosted by FSTech.
TM Group’s Sales and Marketing Director, Ben Harris, in attendance with Managing Director Paul Albone and Account Director Jon Horton to receive the award, was delighted: “We are really pleased to have been rewarded for all of the team’s hard work on the TM Secure platform which, as our submission demonstrated, has proven to offer real value for the lenders using it.”
Harris explained, “TM Secure is the first and only technology platform that is successfully addressing the needs of all the parties involved in buying and selling property, being the glue that keeps multiple parties together.”

The 2014 FStech Awards judges were impressed by the solution’s ability to identify and mitigate risk, while providing clear visibility between all the parties involved in the property chain.
Scott Thompson, Editor of FStech and head of the Awards judging panel, commented:
“Congratulations to TM Group for winning the 2014 Risk Management Software of the Year award. It was an extremely impressive entry which demonstrated coherently and in-depth how the company is tackling the issue of financial crime and mortgage fraud – an increasing problem for lenders. In what was a tough category with several strong entries, the judges opted for TMSecure, which they agreed was a simple, comprehensive and innovative system.”
