The awards recognise achievement and showcase top class performance and innovation in the private wealth sector. The judging panel prides itself on its independence and integrity and draws insights from both private banks and trusted advisors in reaching their decision. WealthBriefingAsia was launched in 2009 to satisfy a growing private wealth market, and it is the only wealth management news site focused exclusively on the Asia-Pacific region.
Counsel Vincent Chan from Appleby’s Hong Kong office and Partner Sharmilla Bhima from the Mauritius office were in attendance to collect the award.
Appleby’s highly-experienced team in Hong Kong is focused on providing on-the-ground advice on Cayman, Bermuda and BVI law matters in the Asia time zone. Clients include Chinese corporations, venture capital firms, tech start-up businesses, closed-end investment firms and credit funds operating across the Asia Pacific region.
Co-Managing Partner of the Hong Kong office, Judy Lee commented “Our private client and trust practice in Hong Kong has long been well regarded in Asia and we’re proud to have been recognised by the prestigious judging panel of industry heavyweights at the WealthBriefingAsia awards for our expertise in this area.”
ClearView Financial Media’s CEO, and Publisher of WealthBriefingAsia, Stephen Harris, was first to extend his congratulations to all the winners. He said: “The firms who triumphed in these awards are all worthy winners, and I would like to extend my heartiest congratulations. 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.”
