Private banking is at one of the most important crossroads in its long history. Strict new regulations covering tax evasion, money laundering controls, and better client servicing standards have eroded banking secrecy and the old offshore banking business.

This new era of Risk Management, with all the reporting and compliance costs involve, will mean pressure on the core profitability of private banking.   That places huge pressures on wealth institutions to reduce costs and, above all, demands greater profitability and productivity from their advisory workforces.

Can all this be reconciled with improving client experience and satisfaction levels?

The combined Summit and Awards dinner provides the opportunity for you to network with other like-minded professionals,meet potential new business partners and hone your own institution’s strategy and competitive positioning.

About the PBI Wealth Awards 
These tributes to the best-of-breed players aim, above all, to be fair and objective benchmarks for the global private banking and wealth management business. The awards have been created to identify industry leaders and those individuals and organisations that are setting new standards. Crucially, they will identify the best practice institutions – those that have done the most in the past year to advance and strengthen wealth management as an industry.

The judging criteria include the ability of institutions to demonstrate a clear and unique strategy to grow their business, regionally or globally; banks that have made the most investment in people and systems to develop their business; banks showing the most innovation in products/services; banks with demonstrably superior client services; and institutions that have strengthened and extended the global reach of their brands.

From the nominations, three institutions or individuals will be short-listed for each award. The final selection will be made by PBI’s judging panel, comprising independent specialists in wealth management and our editorial staff.
