Wealthsimple Wins Second Webby Award

Wealthsimple has won a Webby Award, the international award that celebrates the best of the Internet. For the second consecutive year, Wealthsimple’s site was named Best Financial Services/Banking website by a jury of Internet experts.

Wealthsimple brings professional investing to everyone, using an incredibly simple digital platform. After winning the award in 2016, Wealthsimple completely tore down and rebuilt its website, making it even more transparent, intuitive and beautiful.

“Our website’s constantly evolving to get more intuitive and more human, so we can give our clients the best experience possible. It’s a real validation of our approach to win the Webby Award two years in row, for what are really two completely different websites,” Michael Katchen, CEO at Wealthsimple, told Techvibes.

Katchen was named 2016 Entrepreneur of the Year at the Canadian Startup Awards.

The website was designed by Wealthsimple’s in-house creative team in collaboration with Doberman, with design animation by ManVsMachine and development by Varvet.

Judged by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, the Webby Awards have been called the Internet’s highest honour by the New York Times. The 21st Annual Webby Awards received 13,000 entries from over 70 countries.

The Webby Awards will honour Wealthsimple at its ceremony on May 15th in New York City.
