WealthBriefing Swiss Awards 2018

Overview

A warm welcome to the WealthBriefing Swiss Awards 2018. Nominations are now open and we look forward to seeing old and new faces taking part in this prestigious event.

For those new to the awards, the categories are focused around three main areas:

  • Experts (individuals and teams)
  • Products
  • Services for wealth managers and clients/institutions of all sizes and types

As in previous years, independence, integrity and genuine insight will be the watchwords of the judging process and will be conducted by an expert panel drawn from both private banks and trusted advisors/consultants to the sector.

To avoid any conflict of interest we have two judging panels. One panel of bankers who judge the trusted advisor categories. Another panel of trusted advisors who are responsible for judging the banking categories.

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

We very much hope you take part and look forward to seeing you at the 2018 awards ceremony.

Key Dates

  • Nominations close: 27 October, 2017 (at midnight)
  • Judges meeting: 6 December, 2017 (from 12 noon)
  • Shortlist announcement: 7 December, 2017
  • Awards dinner: 8 February, 2018 (from 7.00pm)

Judging Process

There will be two judging panels for the awards. A panel of trusted advisors who will be responsible for judging the private banking categories. A second panel of private bankers will judge the trusted advisor categories. This is to ensure that commercially sensitive information is kept confidential and to avoid conflicts of interest.
