LONDON, December 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Broadwalk Asset Management today announces the winners of the 2015 Broadwalk Awards - the only awards to exclusively recognize outstanding achievement in the broadly defined services sectors. The winners and finalists were selected with input from the awards' long standing advisory panel comprising of services industry experts from Barclays Capital, Lazards, Rothschilds and UBS.

"The majority of the UK's economic growth now comes from ideas, knowledge and people's skills.
