WealthBriefing European Awards 2016



Now in its fourth year, the WealthBriefing European Awards are set to spread the word about the profession’s achievements to a wider audience. For 2016 the awards will attract over 500 senior banking and wealth management professionals to the industry’s most prestigious gala event.

The awards are focused around three main category groupings:

  • experts (individuals and teams);
  • products and
  • services for wealth managers and clients and institutions of all sizes and types.

Independence, integrity and genuine insight will be the watchwords of the judging process. This involved specially convened expert panels drawn from both private banks and trusted advisors and support by relevant third-party organisations.

Winning a WealthBriefing award sets firms and individuals apart from their peers and is a tangible demonstration that they have something special to offer, rewarding achievement, showcasing top class performance and innovation.

We look forward to receiving your entries and seeing you at the 2016 awards ceremony.
