WealthBriefing is excited to announce the launch of its 2024 European Awards programme.

Now celebrating its twelfth anniversary, and building on the long-standing success of its independent judging process, nominations for the Twelfth Annual WealthBriefing Awards 2024 are now open.

Having reported on the wealth management industry for nearly 20  years and being responsible for many research reports specifically covering European wealth management market, WealthBriefing is well placed to oversee a process that fairly rewards achievement, top class performance and innovation.

Winning an Award

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

If your firm is successful, there is a wide range of ways in which this achievement can be promoted, ranging from logos, editorial and website entries, social media postings and entry into the Annual Winners Acclaim magazine.


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)

Judging Process

There are three judging panels for the awards. A panel of trusted advisors who will be responsible for judging the family office and private banking categories. A second panel of family office and banking professionals will judge the trusted advisor categories and a third panel dedicated to judging the technology section. This is to ensure that commercially sensitive information is kept confidential and to avoid conflicts of interest. Each judge signs an NDA to ensure that all the information that they see in submissions remains strictly confidential.

Gala Dinner

WealthBriefing’s gala dinner is an opportunity for our winners to celebrate their success with their colleagues and peers. The ceremony is highly regarded and attendance is seen as a must for all those lucky enough to have produced a winning entry. A preview of what to expect on the evening can be seen here and this year it shall be held at The Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square in London on Thursday 21st March 2024.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q) Does the entering firm or individual need to be a subscriber to WealthBriefing
A) No, this program is open to all firms and individuals active in wealth management.

Q) Can my firm enter more than one category?
A)Yes, we encourage firms to enter as many awards that are applicable to their business.

Q) Do I need to use the submission form provided?
A)Yes, submissions shall only be accepted when using this document.

Q) Is there any upfront cost to enter?
A) No, there is no upfront cost to enter, but you will be offered the chance to purchase a winner’s marketing package should you be successful. The judging process is completely independent of the commercial arrangements between the participants and the organisers. However it is expected that when the results are made public, winners will engage with the organisers to promote their win and also attend the awards ceremony to accept their trophy.

Q) Is the process open to firms that are not currently active within the European region?
A) The judges will only consider submissions from firms that are demonstrably active in the region. Please see here an overview of our global awards programmes.

Q) How do you ensure that the judging process is independent and impartial?
A) The Judges are independent of the award organisers ensuring they are divided into separate panels to avoid conflicts of interest. 

Q) Can you assure me that any details that I submit will be treated with confidentiality?
A) We only share submissions with the panel responsible for judging those particular categories. Furthermore, our experienced team ensures that there is no conflict of interest before they share an entrant’s submission with anyone. All our judges have signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement.

Q) My submission is likely to be longer than the 1,000-word max limit. Would this disadvantage me?
A) We have set the limit out of respect to the judges and we are keen to maintain this to ensure that there is a level playing field between competing submissions.  Judges reserve the right to refuse to review submissions that do not comply. We also encourage against attachments to the submissions.

Q) Do I need to submit a separate submission for each category?
A) You will need to do a new form for each submission and you should also ensure that this specifically relates to the category for which you are entering. If you are using the same answers for multiple submissions this could result in your entry being marked down by the judging panel.

Q) Where is the winner’s announcement shared?
A)The winners are announced publicly the day after the official awards celebration and this is via our editorial and social media platforms. 

Q) Can I speak to anyone on the team about my entry?
A) Yes, our experienced team is always available to assist you with preparation of your submission/s and any aspects of the process from start to finish. For any questions please contact either rachel.fokes@clearviewpublishing.com or siiri.piiroinen@clearviewpublishing.com
