The Golden Crown competition has been recognizing the best financial products on the Czech market for the past 16 years. The products in 17 product categories are selected by the Financial Academy consisting of over 300 financial experts. An important part of the competition is the Public Award decided upon by the general public voting for the most popular financial products on the internet. Since 2008, the competition has been extended by the Entrepreneurs’ Award which recognizes the most popular financial products for small- and medium-sized enterprises. In 2018, more than 60,000 votes were cast in both public competitions.
