The nomination deadline for the 2010 PBI Global
Wealth Awards has been extended to 31 July, but time is
running out. Considered to be the most prestigious accolades in the
wealth industry for excellence and best practice, winners are due
to be announced this October.

The awards are particularly relevant this year
as the wealth industry adapts to a new investment climate
fundamentally altered by the impact of the global financial

Larger banks have been battling to stem the
outflow of client managed assets, banking mergers and acquisitions
have continued meaning banks are reviewing what they offer clients
and how they manage relationships.

The flight to quality by concerned clients
means that medium-sized and even smaller institutions and boutiques
continue to make gains at the cost of their larger rivals.


Calling all industry leaders

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 as a whole.

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.

This year we have launched a new award,
Outstanding Philanthropy Offering, designed to recognise the
increasing importance of philanthropic services to private wealth
