Overview

2014 saw the launch of the Family Wealth Report awards as ClearView Financial Media set to spread the word about the profession’s achievements to a wider audience. For 2015 the awards promise to attract in the region of 300 – 350 senior banking and wealth management professionals.

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 organizations.

Winning a Family Wealth Report award sets firms apart from their competitors 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 2015 award ceremony.


BACKGROUND

The Family Wealth Report Awards is supported primarily by its global network of daily newswires for the wealth and private asset management communities; Family Wealth Report, WealthBriefing andWealthBriefingAsia.
