Chief Reporter Amelia Murray Named Personal Finance Journalist of the Year

Acknowledgments: Chief Reporter Amelia Murray

Amelia Murray, chief reporter for Money Mail, has been named Personal Finance Journalist of the Year.

Amelia was named the industry’s top journalist at the British Bank Awards earlier this month.

It is the first time that a journalist has been recognized in the awards for the banking sector, which have been running for seven years.

One voter, who nominated Amelia, said: “She is diligent, tenacious and determined and has brought justice to a number of disadvantaged and otherwise powerless people. She persisted for a year in a particularly sad case in which a retiree had his savings stolen in a scam. The bank initially refused to help – but she made sure they paid in the end. She is a wonderful and kind hearted person and really deserves this award.”

Another voter wrote: ‘Untiringly giving a voice to the consumer and a conscience to the industry; everyone wins.’

Amelia joined Money Mail in May 2018 and was promoted to Chief Reporter in July 2019. She specializes in fraud and advocacy for consumer rights.
