Held at the prestigious JW Marriott Hotel, the awards, now in their third year, recognise and celebrate excellence within the Asian wealth management sector. Designed to showcase ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the awards highlight those which have best demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2015.
Commenting on Jersey’s recent success, Geoff Cook, CEO of Jersey Finance, said:
“It is an honour to have been recognised at WealthBriefingAsia’s Hong Kong Awards 2016, which is yet another testament to the hard work Jersey has put in over the past 12 months. Jersey has not only continued to innovate and attract new business, but has also demonstrated its ability to respond quickly and appropriately in a rapidly shifting global market. This prestigious award cements the fact that Jersey remains a leading jurisdiction globally in terms of transparency and countering financial crime.”
ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefingAsia, Stephen Harris, commented:
“Jersey’s change of perpetuity period was a positive aspect in the judges’ assessment, as well as its strength as an offshore jurisdiction. Jersey’s foresight on the transparency measures taken as part of its standard jurisdictional regulations also attracted warm approval.
“These awards were judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions and their response 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 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.”
