Hawksford has been shortlisted as ‘independent trust or fiduciary services company of the year’ at the Wealthbriefing GCC Region Awards 2016.  

The awards showcase ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities. The awards recognise companies, teams and individuals, which have demonstrated innovation and excellence in 2016.  

Tim Cartwright, Director and head of the Middle East team at Hawksford, commented, ‘We are delighted to have been shortlisted for these prestigious awards. Hawksford has established strong connections within the GCC and this nomination is testament to the lasting relationships we have forged with clients in this region.’  

ClearView Financial Media’s Chief Executive, and Publisher of WealthBriefing, Stephen Harris, said, ‘These awards are judged on the basis of entrants’ responses to a number of specific questions, which had to be answered focusing on the client experience, not quantitative performance metrics.  That is a unique, and I believe, compelling feature.  These awards will recognise the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process – such that the awards truly reflect excellence in wealth management.’    

Directors Tim Cartwright and James Howe will be hosting a table at the Wealthbriefing GCC gala awards dinner in Dubai on 1st November 2016 where the winners will be announced.
