Outstanding practitioners from the world of Swiss wealth management were honoured at a gala evening at Geneva’s Hotel President Wilson on the 26th March 2015. The WealthBriefing Swiss Awards 2015 were presented to recognise the range and depth of the Swiss wealth management industry, a sector that continues to face a multitude of challenges. With so much change taking place, it is right that the people setting high standards are recognised. ProFundCom were proud sponsors of the series of awards for Digital Marketing presented by our New Business Director Samantha Booth. The winner of the Marketing awards were IG and BNP Paribas Wealth Management. One of the highlights of the evening came at the very end, when Jean-Pierre Cuoni, chairman of EFG International and a legendary figure in the industry, was honoured with a lifetime achievement award to mark six decades of work and creation in the financial services industry.
According to Stephen Harris, CEO at ClearView Financial Media and Publisher of WealthBriefing, “These awards are judged solely on the basis of entrants’ submissions, and their response to a number of specific questions, which focus on client experience rather than quantitative performance metrics. They recognize the very best operators in the private client industry, with ‘independence’, ‘integrity’ and ‘genuine insight’ the watchwords of the judging process.”
