London, Monday 11 March—Cognito Amsterdam, an independent global communications agency, won three awards at Communicate Magazine’s Corporate Content Awards in London last Thursday.

This year marks the third year in a row the agency was recognized by the Awards, with awards in the Best One-Off Campaign and Best Content to Assist with Reputation Management categories for its work with regulatory technology specialist Hyarchis. The agency also took home an award for its commercial PayTech Talk podcast in the Best Use of Digital category.

Cognito created an integrated content campaign for financial technology company Hyarchis with a whitepaper on KYC and AML 2030 predictions at its center, content launched at Money20/20 EMEA in Amsterdam and supported by a strong PR push.

Cognito also won in the Best Use of Digital category for its commercial payments podcast, PayTech Talk. The project is one of the handful of podcasts produced by the office at its in-house studio in Amsterdam’s financial district.

The agency’s wins this year are on the back of successes in the two precious competitions. In 2023, Cognito won two awards in the Best Use of Content with an Existing External Community and Best Use of Celebrity/Influencer categories. For 2022, Cognito took home honors in the Best Content Campaign to Assist with Corporate Positioning and Most Creative Use of Owned Media Channels categories.

Simona Biveinytė, Marketing Manager at Hyarchis: “Cognito not only quickly generated original insights for the thought-leadership market report on KYC and AML, with content from numerous international influencers, but helped craft a smart launch plan for the Money20/20 event floor. We couldn’t be more pleased with the response and are happy to see Cognito recognized for their work in boosting reputations with effective campaigns.”

Jim Marous, Host of the Banking Transformed podcast: “As an experienced podcaster in financial services, I know firsthand how difficult it is to make something audiences want to keep coming back to. PayTech Talk has successfully done this. It’s been a joy to be a guest on the show. I’m super happy to see them win at the Corporate Content Awards and can’t wait to get back on the show and do another episode!”
