Leading global investor services group IQ-EQ has achieved simultaneous recognition for two of its core service segments, Funds and Private Wealth, with wins in both the 2020 Funds Europe Awards and Citywealth Magic Circle Awards.
The Funds Europe Awards recognise outstanding contributions within the European funds community, while the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards celebrate the elite players within the global private wealth industry.
From the 2020 Funds Europe Awards, IQ-EQ took home the title of ‘European Specialist Administrator of the Year’ in recognition of the firm’s uniquely comprehensive offering to fund managers in the alternative assets space, which includes multiple niche specialisms ranging from cutting-edge reporting tools to private deal introductions.
Meanwhile, IQ-EQ earned two Gold awards in the Citywealth Magic Circle Awards, which were announced publicly this week. IQ-EQ claimed the top prizes for ‘Trust Company of the Year’ and ‘Software Innovators of the Year’, acknowledging both the group’s global private wealth business and its innovative IQ-EQ Cosmos platform, which is unique in the market as a highly customisable, multi-asset class investor reporting tool serviced by expert in-house technical and technological support teams.
Commenting on IQ-EQ’s Funds Europe success, Group Head of Funds Justin Partington, said:
“We are delighted to have won ‘European Specialist Administrator of the Year’, which is a welcome testament to the strength of our funds service offering and reputation across Europe and beyond. Over the past year, IQ-EQ’s Funds segment has gone from strength to strength, with client-focused service developments including and the 2020 roll-out of our Investran DX and Paxus Connect client portals and ESG reporting dashboards for our cutting-edge IQ-EQ Cosmos platform.
“We have exciting plans for the future as we look to launch our dedicated ESG offering and continue to expand and diversify our funds operations globally. Of course, this award would not have been possible without our talented Funds teams in Europe and indeed across the segment as a whole, who continue to collaborate daily to meet our clients’ evolving needs and ensure our continued success.”
IQ-EQ’s Group Head of Private Wealth, Steve Sokić, added:
“We are delighted to have won these two titles in the Magic Circle Awards, which recognise not only the strength of our Private Wealth business but also our group’s innovative technology offering. We continue to pursue new service developments, such as the launch of our dedicated and holistic Family Office Services earlier this year, while looking to expand our presence and service offering in Asia and the Americas. We have had a great year on the awards front, which would not have been possible without the continued hard work and dedication of our worldwide teams, so I would like to share my gratitude and thanks with them all for helping to secure these accolades.”
