Money Mail chief reporter Amelia Murray has been named Personal Finance Journalist of the Year.
Amelia was voted best journalist in the industry at the British Bank Awards earlier this month.
It is the first time that a journalist has received an award in the banking industry’s awards, which have been held for the past seven years.
A voter who nominated Amelia said: “Hardworking, tenacious and determined, she has cared for a number of unfairly treated and otherwise powerless people.
“She has been stuck for a year on a particularly sad case involving a pensioner having his life savings stolen in a scam. The bank initially refused to help – but they made sure they eventually paid. She is a wonderful and kind person and really deserves this award.”
Another voter wrote: “Tiring to give consumers a voice and industry a conscience; everyone wins.’
Amelia joined Money Mail in May 2018 and was promoted to Chief Reporter in July 2019. She specializes in fraud and defending consumer rights.
