Mourant International Finance Administration beat off tough competition to take three prestigious industry awards and was named "European Private Equity Fund Administrator of the Year", European Property Fund Administrator of the Year” and "Fund Administrator of the Year: Channel Islands" at the International Custody and Fund Administration awards in London. The awards ceremony took place at the Grosvenor House hotel in Park Lane on Thursday, 25 November. The aim of the awards is to recognise and highlight excellence and achievement, and to encourage service providers to raise standards and improve efficiency and client service. The judges, a select group of leading industry figures, this year used a highly refined, rigorous and transparent judging process. Explaining the judging process, ICFA publisher Jon Greene said: "In previous years a good reputation, a slick marketing presentation and some high quality client testimonials might have been enough to secure an award. This year nominating firms had to go several miles further. Finding the answers to many of the questions we asked often meant spending considerable time with their operational departments.” Commenting on winning the awards, Ian Lambert, CEO of Mourant International Finance Administration, said: "I am thrilled that we have once again been recognised as the leading provider of alternative fund administration services in Europe. Winning an outstanding three awards is a real testament to our dedicated and talented teams of people at Mourant working across all of our global offices and the quality of clients we serve.” Iain Stokes, Group Managing Director at Mourant International Finance Administration, added: “This is a fantastic achievement. We work in a highly competitive industry and we were shortlisted with some of the industries biggest players in all categories. The awards reflect the quality, knowledge and skills of our teams and the added value service they consistently offer our clients.” ENDS.
