Joe Saul-Sehy and Natalie Torres-Haddad will co-host and emcee the 12th Annual Plutus Awards ceremony.
The ceremony, which will be held in Austin, Texas, on September 23, 2021, celebrates excellence in independent financial media. After last year’s virtual awards ceremony, the Plutus Awards team is grateful that we can return in person to present a fun and meaningful event, safely, at the Austin Convention Center in coordination with FinCon21.
“Community is at the heart of the Plutus Foundation, and I’m thrilled that Joe and Natalie will help bring the community of financial content creators back together to celebrate the best of all we do,” said Harlan Landes, the executive director of the Plutus Foundation, which presents the Plutus Awards.
This year’s Plutus Awards will feature finalists and winners throughout a number of categories of content, like Best Financial Content for Women, Best Financial Independence or Retire Early Content, and Best Debt Freedom Content. The awards also highlight top freelance contributors and those who make an impact in their communities. As with every year, the ceremony will conclude with top categories including Lifetime Achievement, Podcast of the Year, and People’s Choice.
