WealthBriefingAsia is excited to announce the launch of our inaugural awards program highlighting the importance of External Asset Managers to the wealth management industry in Asia.

Building on the success of our Swiss EAM Awards, the nomination process for the WealthBriefingAsia External Asset Management Awards 2022 is now open culminating in a celebratory cocktail event at The Mandarin Oriental, Singapore on 13th October 2022.

The categories for entry are focused around these main areas:

  • Pan-Asia
  • International
  • Regional
  • Team-Based
  • Specialist
  • Technology (both in-house and external)
  • Individual and Leadership

As is the case for all our global awards programs, independence, integrity and genuine insight will be the watchwords of the judging process, which as always will be conducted by expert panels drawn from both custodian banks and trusted advisors/consultants to the sector.

Having reported on the wealth management industry for over 15 years and being responsible for several research report specifically covering this area, we are best placed to initiate a process that fairly rewards achievement, top class performance and innovation.

Winning a WealthBriefingAsia Award sets organisations and individuals apart from their peers and is a tangible demonstration that they have something special to offer.

We very much look forward to you joining the process and to welcoming you to celebrate your achievement at the awards presentation in October 2022.
